Dear Group and Mathematica staff. In the functional programming spirit I am missing a postfix notation for Map[ ]. Du to its clarity I often prefer the sequentiall postfix style processing of expressions and data: e.g. data//F1//F2//F3 but what if our data is a List and the functions we want to perform on don't have the Listable Attribute ?. the clumsy solution now is: data//F1/@#&//F2/@#&//F3/@#& therefor I suggest a new functional operator, which e.g. could look like this: /// such that my favorit expression would appear in this nice and clear form: data///F1///F2///F3 In other words the new /// operator should temporarily activate the Listable Atrribute for the affected function any comments welcome Robert
