Use Thread[{x,y}]


>>> Dr. Wolfgang Hintze<weh at> 1/16/2004 6:47:50 AM >>>
Given two lists

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

paarweise[x_, y_, n_] := Table[{x[[i]], y[[i]]}, {i, 1, n}]


z = paarweise[x, y, 3]

{{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.
