I have an array of numbers. I want to find set of numbers for which difference of two consecutive numbers is 1. For example, I have a sequence [2,3,6,8,9,10,12,14,16,17]. How can I extract position of (2,3), (8,9,10), (16,17)? I also want to save the output in a new array.

id=[10 diff(v) 10]==1
ii1=strfind(id,[0 1])
ii2=strfind(id,[ 1 0])


It worked. Thanks.

To avoid a collision with the elements on the margins:
id = [false, diff(v)==1, false];
@Jan Simon Thank you for the suggestion.
