I assume that you know that # has a special meaning in Mathematica ( arguments of pure functions, see http://reference.wolfram.com/mathematica/ref/Slot.html ) and that you know that the correct syntax for this meaning is #1, #5, #7, etc. and that #[[1]],#[[2]], etc. is NOT correct, then you can generate your list with the correct syntax with the following command: Map[Slot, {1, 5, 7, 9}] Or with this: example={1,5,7,9} Map[Slot,example] HTH Jose Mexico -----Mensaje original----- De: Francisco Gutierrez [mailto:fgutiers2002 at yahoo.com] Enviado el: Viernes, 16 de Julio de 2010 04:16 a.m. Para: mathgroup at smc.vnet.net Asunto: [mg110988] Generate #s Dear Group: Suppose I have a list of ordered integers: example={1,5,7,9} Based on it, I want to generate a list of the form: {#[[1]], #[[5]],#[[7]],#[[9]]} I tested with simple things like: Table[#[[example[[i]]]], {i,1,Length[example]}] to no avail. How can I do it?
