Compare rows from different columns

3 views (last 30 days)
I'm sure this isn't difficult but my brain is struggling a little:
I want to compare two column vectors and see if any of the values in the 1st are larger than any of the corresponding values in the 2nd.
For instance, if row 8 is larger in the 2nd column than the 1st.
Or if row 6 is larger in the 2nd column than the 1st.

One approach —
A = randi(50,10,2)
A = 10×2
50 1 2 25 44 38 48 14 46 12 42 9 2 28 4 13 34 18 2 2
Col_2_Larger = A(:,2) > A(:,1)
Col_2_Larger = 10×1 logical array
0 1 0 0 0 0 1 1 0 0
ColNr = find(Col_2_Larger);
fprintf('Col 2 larger in row %d\n', ColNr)
Col 2 larger in row 2 Col 2 larger in row 7 Col 2 larger in row 8
.
