Try this:
> x <- matrix(1:40,ncol=5)
> # function to find zero rows
> f.zero <-
+ function(arr)
+ {
+ which(apply(arr, 1, function(z) all(z == 0)))[1] # first one
+ }
>
> # now the non-zero rows
> f.nonzero <-
+ function(arr)
+ {
+ which(apply(arr, 1, function(z) any(z != 0)))
+ }
>
> f.zero(x)
[1] NA
> f.nonzero(x)
[1] 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
> # now make one zero
> x[3,] <- 0
> f.zero(x)
[1] 3
> f.nonzero(x)
[1] 1 2 4 5 6 7 8
> # more than one
> x[1,] <- 0
> f.zero(x)
[1] 1
> f.nonzero(x)
[1] 2 4 5 6 7 8
