This will work when >the "identical form" is an irregularly nested list ... Hi Robby, Can you give a spec for the behavior of Listable attribute? In other words, how can I write a function ListableBehavior[f_,args___] such that the result returned is equivalent to executing f[args] where f has the Listable attribute? (Of course, without using the build-in Listable functionality.) I dabbled with Thread, but don't have the exact solution.
