Dear Martin:
First: you can write any two-arguments command in infix notation using
arg1~command~arg2
For example, evaluate:
a~foo~b
And you will obtain foo[a,b]
Therefore, you can evaluate:
f[#1, #2] & ~MapThread~ {{a, b, c}, {d, e, f}}
And you will obtain the same result as MapThread[f[#1, #2] &,{{a, b, c}, =
{d,
e, f}}]
Second: In order to make it really convenient, you can evaluate at the
beginning of your document:
mt=MapThread
After the evaluation above, every time you write mt Mathematica will =
replace
it with MapThread, therefore you will be able to write:
f[#1, #2] & ~mt~ {{a, b, c}, {d, e, f}}
which might be short enough and fast enough for your purposes. On the =
other
hand, something like /@@ might be too complex to implement, because
Mathematica separates /@ from @ even before trying the evaluation.
Hope that helps.

Asunto: [mg95015] Shorthand for MapThread
All -
I frequently use Map and MapThread, and find Map's shorthand:
f /@ {a,b,c}
to be very convenient.
As far as I can tell, MapThread has no corresponding "infix" notation.
Can anyone tell me if it's possible (and if so, how) to make my own?
E.g.
f[#1,#2]& /@@ {{a,b,c},{d,e,f}}
Thanks!
Marty
