Error with Uniquetol: " Repetitive numbers not being removed"

1 view (last 30 days)
I have this double array by the name " GlobalNMesh", I am attaching the file.
It has some repetitive numbers, as shown
I am using
c = uniquetol(GlobalNMesh)
But I am not getting correct results, repetitive numbers are not being removed...
Does anybody know what changes to make?

Set the tolerance to a suitable value, e.g.:
>> uniquetol(GlobalNMesh,1e-3)
ans =
0 0.0336 0.1199 0.1331

Yeah, fix the magnitude of the tolerance interval you want distinguished--by default uniquetol(A) uses 1e-6 for single-precision inputs and 1e-12 for double-precision inputs.
Your values are different only in the 5th/6th position so need a tolerance to reflect that...
