I a vector of numbers that I am trying to find the differences between each element in the vector without a for loop. Below is a code example. Is there a more efficient way to execute this code without a for loop?
x = rand(20,1);
diff = zeros(length(x),length(x));
for ix = 1:length(x)
for iy = (ix+1):length(x)
diff(ix,iy) = abs(x(ix) - x(iy));
end
end

diff() is a built in function. Don't use it for a variable name.
For a microscopic length such as 20, don't worry about a for loop. It won't take any time at all, and in fact may take less than calling some fancy function.

Richard's "Answer" moved here since it is not an answer to the original question:
Thanks for the help. My actual code has a vector that is much larger. I was just using this as an example.

I have the question to find all pair-wise difference in a group without loop!
My array in scale of milions!

Try using pdist2, pdist, or diff

x = randi(10,3,1)
x = 3×1
5 4 8
d = abs(x - x.')
d = 3×3
0 1 3 1 0 4 3 4 0
