Re: transforming a rule of lists to a list of rules


This doesn't test for whether the two lists have equal lengths, but  
that would be easy to add:

In[15]:=
delist = #1 /. {({a__} -> {b__}) :> (Rule @@ #1 & ) /@ Transpose 
[{{a}, {b}}]} &

Out[15]=
#1 /. {({a__} -> {b__}) :> (Rule @@ #1 & ) /@ Transpose[{{a}, {b}}]} &

In[16]:=
delist[{a, b, c} -> {0, 3, x}]

Out[16]=
{a -> 0, b -> 3, c -> x}
