RE: With ZIP()...
It's just one of the CAS commands, accessible via the toolbox catalog, and described in HELP, and the user guide. The command lets you zip through two lists (or matrices), returning the function value applied to them.

My 'issue' is that help descriptions for CAS commands tend to work directly in the CAS view, but not in HOME view or HOME programs. Instead, the function arguments must be treated in a special way, (converted to string objects), in order to work outside of CAS. Unless that notion is firmly understood, there is a lot of related frustration. It would be nice to have examples of this extra requirement or at least something that points out that distinction as a general concept.

I've noticed that a lot of discussion in various forums has to do with folks working in the HOME environment, but needing the CAS functions as part of their process.
