Suppose we have a list {a, b, c} and a mask {1, 0, 1} (or {True, False, True}). And we want to apply this mask to a list -- we want to keep elements that correspond to 1 or True in the mask and to remove elements that correspond to 0 or False.

I found only Select and Cases functions, but they seem to work only with patterns and functional criterion.

So what will be the good solution?

Pick[{a, b, c}, {True, False, True}]


Pick[{a, b, c}, {1,0,1},1]
