In this case, {2,3,4,45,98} + 1 will do what you want. More generally, you can avoid defining a throwaway function by using a pure function, aka the Function function. Eg: Map[Function[n, n+1], {2,3,4,45,98}] (Check out the online help for Listable and Function for more.) --- \/ FROM Thiery Balser AT 03.11.04 08:54 (Today) \/ --- > Hi, > > I'm sort of stuck. > > I would like to have all elements in a list incremted by a given number > without defining a supplementary function. > > What I've done so far is: > > incFunc[n_]:=n+1; > Map[incFunc,{2,3,4,45,98}] > > which is all fine.
