I have a problem with basic list options.
1. I have a list over 1000+ elements. How do I find out how many elements are in that list?
mylist=ReadList["myfile", {Number, Number}]

Now I want to read list and multiply the first Number by 100 and Log second Number.

mylist=ReadList["myfile", {Number, Log[Number]}]

Log works fine, but:
mylist=ReadList["myfile", {100*Number, Log[Number]}]
does not.
I've tried to define a function metersTOcentimeters[x_]:=100*x
and then:
mylist=ReadList["myfile", {metersTOcentimeters[Number], Log[Number]}]
but it still doesn't work.
