Hi friends:

    To fix the position of maximal or minimal element(s) in one List,
I code as follows:

------------------------------
    MaxElementPosition[ list_?ListQ ] := Position[ list, Max[list]]
[[1,1]];

    MinElementPosition[ list_?ListQ ] := Position[ list, Min[list]]
[[1,1]];

e.g.

    lst = {3, 2, 4,2,1}
   MaxElementPosition[lst] ----------> 3
   MinElementPosition[lst]  -----------> 5
------------------------------
would you show me more efficient mathelets to update them.

Thanks~~~
