Wolfgang, Transpose[{x, y}] David Park djmp at earthlink.net http://home.earthlink.net/~djmp/ From: Dr. Wolfgang Hintze [mailto:weh at snafu.de] To: mathgroup at smc.vnet.net Given two lists In[7]:= x = {a, b, c} y = {A, B, C} I'm looking for the list of pairs z = {{a, A}, {b, B}, {c, C}} Defining the function In[5]:= paarweise[x_, y_, n_] := Table[{x[[i]], y[[i]]}, {i, 1, n}] gives In[6]:= z = paarweise[x, y, 3] Out[6]= {{a, A}, {b, B}, {c, C}} I'm sure there is a more elegant way to get such a list of pairs. Any help is appreciated. Wolfgang Hintze
