Hi Fii,
First, if your first matrix is 2x100, then it has 2 rows and 100
columns, so your first row would be 100 elements long. Did you mean
that it is 100x2 or that your first column would be [20;200]?
If it is 2x100, and the rows are like you say they are, then one
(horribly inefficient) way is to do something like:
C = diag(B(A(:,1), A(:,2));
I'm sure there is a better ways, but this could be a start.
Hope this helps.
