I've been trying to create a function to write a bmatrix in which I pass as argument 1: initial vector position; 2: final vector position.

\def\writeV#1#2{{
\begin{pmatrix}
\foreach \i in {#1,...,#2}{
1\\2
}
\end{pmatrix}
}}

This is a simplification. Since there is a third argument where I have some values stored, and therefore I would access such data by using the variable \i. But for the purpose of the question with 1\2 should be enough.

The problem as far as I read is about "\\" and because \foreach is not expandable... I am not an expert in LaTex so I apreciate if someone can break it down simply. I read that it might work with the package "xparse".

Finally, this is my first post so any editions of the thread are welcome!

    percusse thanks for your answer! That was useful! The only problem was that for printing a vector I had to use a dummy index 1: \foreach \j in {1} { \foreach \i in {#1,...,#2}{....}} – Rafael PB Oct 2 '17 at 15:48
  • @RafaelPB that comment will not help others who come to read your question. If you solved the problem provide an answer with a compilable mwe, and accept it. – user4686 Oct 2 '17 at 21:50
  • @jfbu Well like I said I managed to solve it by using a dummy index adapting the code from the link above. But indeed that's not the answer nor solution I wanted to achieve, therefore I cannot attach a code that is for a matrix of number of rows = 1 and n columns (which indeed is a vector). If I make any progress for a vector I will kindly post it, that's why I said it was it was useful but not my solution. Anyway if you know how to solve it, you can add an answer with a compilable mwe too! – Rafael PB Oct 4 '17 at 10:57
