Hi, Kevin,
If your list contains only one "sublevel" of lists (as in your
example), try mapping Length over the list. Something like
In[1]:=
y = {{1, 2}, {3, 4}, {5, 6}}
Out[1]=
{{1, 2}, {3, 4}, {5, 6}}
In[2]:=
Length /@ y
Out[2]=
{2, 2, 2}
x = {{1}, {2, 3}, {4, 5, 6, 7}}
Length /@ x
Out[3]=
{{1}, {2, 3}, {4, 5, 6, 7}}
Out[4]=
{1, 2, 4}
Hope that helps!
C.O.
