```Hi,
I'm trying to choose elements from list based on elements in different
list and I came up with the ideas listed below. It seems to me that
there are a few too many steps involved here, and I need to run this on
larger lists (~20000 entries).
Are there ways to improve this?
Thanks,
Claus

Here is the mathematica code:

Reihe1={22,33,44,0,0,16,5,0,0,0}
Reihe2={16,27,0,0,5,11,5,0,0,12}

{22, 33, 44, 0, 0, 16, 5, 0, 0, 0}

{16, 27, 0, 0, 5, 11, 5, 0, 0, 12}

(*Find out where in Reihe1 and in Reihe2 are Zeros and notZeros*)

{False, False, False, True, True, False, False, True, True, True}

{True, True, True, False, False, True, True, False, False, False}

{False, False, True, True, False, False, False, True, True, False}

{True, True, False, False, True, True, True, False, False, True}

(*Select the values of Reihe1 and Reihe2 which are of interest

There are 4 Cases (not all of them calculated later) :
Case1 :  Reihe1 and Reihe2 are 0
Case2 :  Reihe1 and Reihe2 are NOT 0
Case3 : (Reihe2 is NOT 0) AND (Reihe1 is 0)
Case4 : (Reihe1 is NOT 0) AND (Reihe2 is 0)*)

PreCase3=Pick[Reihe2,Reihe1Is0]
PreCase4=Pick[Reihe1,Reihe2Is0]

{0, 5, 0, 0, 12}

{44, 0, 0, 0}

Case3=Select[PreCase3,#>0&]
Case4=Select[PreCase4,#>0&]

{5, 12}

{44}
