Hi Przemek,
thanks for your reply!
I don't need to interpolate the data, actually the best thing would be to
have NaN where the y-data doesn't match the X vector.
this script is doing what I needed to do:

dx = x(2)-x(1);
Y = zeros(1,length([min(x):dx:max(x)]));
X = [min(x):dx:max(x)];
for k=1:length(X)
  if isempty(y(x==X(k))) 
    Y(k) = 0;
    Y(k) = y(st);

thanks again,
