# Basics: Making a vector the MATLAB way2

Posted by Doug Hull,

I recently received an email asking me a question about how to create an array that is composed of different outputs from functions. The user was new to MATLAB, but had a background in programming other languages. This was evident in his code, which used the scalar approach required of languages like C. In this video, I show how we can use vector indexing in MATLAB to express his code in a much more natural way.

vec=[1 2 sin(3:6) cos(7:10)];
