Hi,
I type the following commands to get the max of a and the index of that max. My expected answer is: val = 15 ind = 2 But after I typed the following commands, I got an error message. Could you please let me know how to write the commands correctly? Thank you.
Here are the commands I typed in Octave: >> a a =
1.00000 15.00000 2.00000 0.50000
>> [val. ind] = max (a) parse error:
syntax error
>>> [val. ind] = max (a) ^


Try replacing the period with a comma.
Sorry, I should have sent the first message to the mailing list as well Try replacing the period with a comma.  Brett Green Hi,

why did you name it val. <<<< there should not be a period there.
