Subject: Re: Updating A Vector

if your values in matrix2 are aligned as in your example, then you can do
the following (which works for arbitrary values in matrix1 but you could
simplify it if you have just 1s):

matrix1 = matrix1*(matrix2==0) + (matrix2!=0)*2;

The only problematic case would be special values such NaNs in matrix1
because they cannot be pruned away due to NaN * 0 = NaN, but you can use
our replace builtin function to eliminate NaNs before that.

Regards,
Matthias
