Hi Shubaa,
Here is one way to do this:
is.between <- function(x, a, b) {
x > a & x < b
}
set.seed(123)
x <- rnorm(5)
is.between(x, -1, 1)
> is.between(x, -1, 1)
[1] TRUE TRUE FALSE TRUE TRUE

Ravi.

Or at least anyways of defining a vector/(or something like that) which has
all values between 0 and 1?
For example:
C(0,1) is incorrect, seq(0,1,0.2) is also incorrect, seq(0,1,0.00001) is
also incorrect.... How does one specify this?
Thanks, Shubha

If you don't like (C > 0 && C < 1), then just write your own function
is.between(x, low, high) (NB1 you've basically written it already; NB2
single '&' for the vectorised version 'are.between'). People's personal
tastes about what's desirable will vary, and anyway it's good practice to
build up your own personal library of functions. Ultimately if you have a
high quality collection of related functions for working on a particular
sort of problem, then you should publish them as an R package on CRAN.
