Janos,
lst = {{a, b}, {c, d}, e, f, {g, h, i}, j, k, {l, m}, {n, o, p},
q, {r, s}, {{t}}};
First I am going to assume that you are going to search only for patterns at
the first level of the list. Otherwise you will need a more complicated
naming scheme that will not generate duplicated.
Also, I am going to return replacement rules, instead of setting named
variables. Otherwise you won't know what the named variables actually are.
extractListPatterns[list_, pattern_, char_:"p"] :=
Module[
{positions, names},
positions = Position[list, pattern, {1}, Heads -> False] // Flatten;
names =
Table[Symbol[char <> ToString[Part[positions, i]]], {i, 1,
Length[positions]}];
Thread[names -> Part[list, positions]]
]
extractListPatterns[lst, {_, _, _}]
{p5 -> {g, h, i}, p9 -> {n, o, p}}
extractListPatterns[lst, {{_}}]
{p12 -> {{t}}}
extractListPatterns[lst, {_, _}]
{p1 -> {a, b}, p2 -> {c, d}, p8 -> {l, m}, p11 -> {r, s}}
extractListPatterns[lst, x_Symbol]
{p3 -> e, p4 -> f, p6 -> j, p7 -> k, p10 -> q}
extractListPatterns[lst, {_, _, _, _}]
{}
For a more general scheme that will extract patterns at any level, or at
specified levels...
extractListPatterns2[list_, pattern_, var_:p, levelspec_:Infinity] :=
Module[
{positions, names, parts},
positions = Position[list, pattern, levelspec, Heads -> False];
names = Table[p @@ Part[positions, i], {i, 1, Length[positions]}];
parts = Extract[list, positions];
Thread[names -> parts]
]
extractListPatterns2[lst, {_, _, _}]
{p[5] -> {g, h, i}, p[9] -> {n, o, p}}
extractListPatterns2[lst, {{_}}]
{p[12] -> {{t}}}
extractListPatterns2[lst, {_Symbol}]
{p[12, 1] -> {t}}
extractListPatterns2[lst, {_, _}]
{p[1] -> {a, b}, p[2] -> {c, d}, p[8] -> {l, m}, p[11] -> {r, s}}
extractListPatterns2[lst, _Symbol, p, 1]
{p[3] -> e, p[4] -> f, p[6] -> j, p[7] -> k, p[10] -> q}
extractListPatterns2[lst, _Symbol, p, {2}]
{p[1, 1] -> a, p[1, 2] -> b, p[2, 1] -> c, p[2, 2] -> d, p[5, 1] -> g,
p[5, 2] -> h, p[5, 3] -> i, p[8, 1] -> l, p[8, 2] -> m, p[9, 1] -> n,
p[9, 2] -> o, p[9, 3] -> p, p[11, 1] -> r, p[11, 2] -> s}
extractListPatterns2[lst, {_, _, _, _}]

Before I re-invent the wheel let me ask:
I need to assign names to list elements in a nested list based upon
their position in the nested list. For example if I have a list:
lst = {{a,b},{c,d},e,f,{g,h,i},j,k,{l.m},{n,o,p},q,{r,s},{{t}}}
then
pos=Position[lst,{_,_,_}] will give me
{{5}.{9}}
Now, I am thinking to assign a unique name to the list elements on
these positions, like p5={g,h,i} and p9={n,o,p}. I did not find yet
how to create variable names with concatenation auto-magically from
program. In other programming languages I can do something like this:
var="p"+NumToString[5]
&var={a,b,c}
and I could refer to it afterward as p5 and its value would be {a,b,c}.
The most handy would be if I could take just the name of the position
and assign that to it, like:
For[i=1, i<=Length[pos], i++, NumberToName[pos[[i]]]=lst[[pos[[i]] ]] ]
and I would get:
five={g,h,i} and nine={n,o,p}.
Of course lst[[pos[[i]] ]] where' i' goes from 1 to 2 is somewhat doing
it but it is a little bit complicated.
I looked the book and the online documentation but could not find a
function called NumberToName which would do
NumberToName[5]
five
and vice versa
NameToNumber[five]
5
Is there such function or procedure in someone's drawer ?
If not, then what is the right way to get a unique variable name with
some clear deterministic nature - like above - from Mathematica ?
Thanks ahead,
János
