FAQ
Do you want the "closest" or what range it is in? If you want the range,
then use 'cut':

x <- c(144, 179, 214, 39, 284, 109, 74, 4, 249)
range <- c(0, 50, 100, 150, 200, 250, 300, 350)
result <- cut(x, breaks = range)
cbind(x, as.character(result))
x
[1,] "144" "(100,150]"
[2,] "179" "(150,200]"
[3,] "214" "(200,250]"
[4,] "39" "(0,50]"
[5,] "284" "(250,300]"
[6,] "109" "(100,150]"
[7,] "74" "(50,100]"
[8,] "4" "(0,50]"
[9,] "249" "(200,250]"

What is the problem that you are trying to solve?
Tell me what you want to do, not how you want to do it.

Harun,

Can you give a simple example?

If your cross_section looked like this
c(144, 179, 214, 39, 284, 109, 74, 4, 249)
and your other vector looked like this
c(0, 50, 100, 150, 200, 250, 300, 350)
what would you want your subset to look like?

Hello,
I have a dataset with two columns 1. cross_section (range: 0~635), and
2. elevation. The dataset has more than 100 rows. Now I want to make a
subset on the condition that the 'cross_section' column will pick up the
nearest cell from another vector (say 0, 50,100,150,200,.....,650).
How can I do this? I would really appreciate a solution.
Regards,
Harun
