# create a binary matrix

So I need this help creating a binary matrxi, it's actually to convert a trips matrix to a binary matrix.

A part of the original matrix looks like this:

banana forestorange forestpear forest
3121
402
023

as I have for total 10,000 rows (farmers)* 20 columns (forests)

I hope to covnert it to something like this, (visited or not)

banana forestorange forestpear forest
111
101
011

Please let me kow how do I efficiently do the convertion.

Thanks a lot.
