I'm new to matlab and am having trouble with a certain function, called score. I've looked at this for a while now and can't see where im going wrong?!

The fucntion scores the similarities of two matrices,

1 for a match

-1 for a non match

the code:

function s = Score(x,y,d)

% Score matirx for x and y in {1,2,3,4}

% Mismatch penalty = d

s = ((x==1)'*(y==1)+(x==2)'*(y==2)+(x==3)'*(y==3)...

+(x==4)'*(y==4))*(1+d) - d;

input:

x = ceil(4*rand(1,5))

y = ceil(4*rand(1,7))

[0 y; x' Score(x,y,1)]

..and that error...

??? Error using ==> _times_transpose

Function '*' is not defined for values of class 'logical'.

Error in ==> C:\MATLAB6p5p1\work\Score.m

On line 6 ==> s = ((x==1)'*(y==1)+(x==2)'*(y==2)+(x==3)'*(y==3)...

.. i;m not sure what it is?! i'm sure its something dumb.

Can you suggest a learning resource, my curernt approach is to go through online tutorials.

Thanks for your time
