Here is one way of doing it:

x<-c(rep(0,5), rep(1,5), rep(0,10), rep(1,8))
  [1] 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 1 1 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1
# mark changes from 0->1 and create increments
indx <- cumsum(c(FALSE, diff(x) == 1))

# keep just matches with '1'
x.i <- ifelse(x == 1, indx, 0)
  [1] 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 1 1 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2

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

Dear all

I have a vector ones and zeroes like that
x<-c(rep(0,5), rep(1,5), rep(0,10), rep(1,8))

and I need to get result like that
x.i<-c(rep(0,5), rep(1,5), rep(0,10), rep(2,8))

It means I need an unique identifier for each sequence of ones.

It probably can be done by rle, cumsum and some fiddling with data but
maybe there is some clever way which I overlooked.
