This isn't quite what I had in mind. What I have is more like:
n=100
old={Array[olda,{n}], Array[oldc,{n}], Array[oldx,{n}], Array[oldy,{n}]}
new={Array[newa,{n}], Array[newc,{n}], Array[newx,{n}], Array[newy,{n}]}
cond=Table[Random[Integer]==1,{n}]
Now "a" should be assigned a list whose k'th element is picked from either
olda[[k]] or newa[[k]] depending on cond[[k]], and similarly for c, x, and
y.
Thanks for your help!
Scott
