Hi Alan,
Using anonymous pure function semantics will probably be not the simplest
way to achieve your goal. Assuming that your variables {x1,x2,etc} don't
have global values (you must ensure it in your construction anyway) and that
you know which ones and how many of them you need in advance, here is a
possibility:
In[1] =
convertToFunction[eqs_, vars_List] := Function[Evaluate[vars], eqs];
In[2] = T = convertToFunction[{0, 5*x1, 1, 10*x3, 3*x2},{x1,x2,x3}]
Out[2] = Function[{x1, x2, x3}, {0, 5 x1, 1, 10 x3, 3 x2}]
In[3] = T[1, 2, 3]
Out[3] = {0, 5, 1, 30, 6}
This uses your variables x1, ... directly as function variables. The
<Evaluate> in the code is needed to force the binding to the variables
x1,etc. Note that the syntax is slightly different - you pass a sequence of
arguments rather than a list.
If you really need slots for the anonimous function (#...), what is your
application - what is it that you want to do with them?
Regards,
Leonid
