Say I have the matrices:

A = { 1 -2 3,

         -1 1 5,

          3 -2 -4};

B = { 0 0 0,

         0 0 0,

          0 0 0};

And I would like to apply the following logic: If a value of A is less than zero (A<B), then keep the value. If not then double the value.

My goal is the matrix

C = { 2  -2 6,

         -1 2 10,

          6 -2 -4};

Can this be done in IML?  I am running into issues where the comparison is being treated as an ALL function. 

Or, if I use a statement such as C=A>B then I am returned a matrix of binary values based on the comparison.

Thanks!

You don't need the matrix B.  Use the CHOOSE function as follows:

C = choose(A<0, A, 2*A);
