Thiery, there are many ways. The simplest, with x as your list, use (read about listable operators)

x+1

else, for more complicated operations learn to use pure functions

Map[ Function[#+1], x]

But you can also accomplish the same with Table and Do.

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. It is only that I'm looking for a solution _without_
defining the mentioned function incFunc.


Thanks in advance,

Thiery
