I have a character matrix mtr of n rows and 3 columns.
I have a numeric vector nmb with some numbers, for example, 4,5,6
I want to sort only the rows of mtr, the numbers of which are contained by nmb, by the first column of my matrix.
So in my case I want to leave my matrix untouched except for rows 4,5,6 which I would like to be sorted by the first column and, of course, written back into my matrix mtr.
How could I do that? Thanks.
