Re: Selecting, matching and counting column elements, using randomly generated numbers
in thread Selecting, matching and counting column elements, using randomly generated numbers
The numbers are generated at random and I just print them to the screen to show what they are. But, yes you could store them in a file! So what i intend to do is to use the random numbers generated to do the counts! For instance if my group has 38, 39, 40; then what I intend to do is to compare the z's in columns 38, 39, 40 (that have been randomly generated) of my file! So if they are 44, 45, 99, ...., 123; I would like to count and find the average of all the z's that are common to all these columns!
The bit that doesn't work is where I run out of ideas and got stuck!
