I have an array which is increasing. At one point it starts to decrease. This trend starts repeating many times in array. How to extract only the decreasing portion from that array?

d = diff( YourArray(:).' ); %I assume it is a vector of unknown orientation
goes_down = strfind([0 d>0], [1 0]) + 1;
stops_going_down = strfind([0 d<0], [1 0]);
n_seg = length(goes_down);
segs = cell(1, n_seg);
for K = 1 : n_seg;
segs{K} = YourArray(goes_down(K) : stops_going_down(K));
end

When you process the multiple files, at each step do you want to forget about the previous file (except perhaps for the plot that has been drawn), or at each step do you want to add on to the seg2s / seg3s arrays so that you end up with one long cell array of those that includes all of the files, or do you want to use a cell array wrapping around each of those so that you can index into the cell array to get the seg2s / seg3s relevant to that file, or ....?
