Thanks....Didn't mean actually using '&', but not bigger than that too...
I usually see something done much better in R-help by a code which I don't know at all. So, wanted to know if I am missing somewhere in using some codes which I am not aware of...so, posted the query...
Thanks for your help, Shubha

Here is how you check whether a < x < b "without" using the `&' condition:
is.between <- function(x, a, b) {
(x - a) * (b - x) > 0
}

Thanks Ravi... But was just wondering if there existed a simple tricky
command for that without using the & condition....
Also was thinking on my second question that how do we define an interval
between 0 and 1 which contains all the values between 0 and 1.
Thanks, Shubha

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
>

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.
