Nasser I've followed this thread for a couple of days and it surprises me that it hasn't drawn more discussion. I think this approach makes lots of sense and makes dealing with a wide variety of collections of data and results much easier to handle. I have often found myself "tagging" levels or even elements in a output list to try to emulate the same thing, but your idea works much better. I haven't thought this through completely, but do you see this approach having any drawbacks? Might a struct restrict preclude some Mapping operations which one could do on a nested list? I'd like to see this as a package that we could use to define structs easily across any notebook. Very interesting idea. A. P.S. I've posted this through Google Groups but notice that sometimes things posted through Google Groups don't seem to appear on the original Drexel site. Anyone else have the trouble?
