Faster way of writing this code: (finding index)
4 views (last 30 days)
The code I want to optimize is:
index_min = sum( input > quantiles );
where quantiles is a vector of doubles in increasing order. I am using the sum function to find the index of quantiles that corresponds to the value of input. I think the "find" function is actually slower.

That code does not return an index, but it does return the number of values in vector quantiles that are smaller than input.
