Hey, that sounds like a nice challenge.

My first purely(?) functional solution is (indentation+linebreaks for readability):
Code:
napply(fn, lsts):=   seq(     fn(seq(       map(lsts, lst->lst(k)) )),     k=1..min(map(lsts, length)) )

Usage:
a:={a1,a2,a3,a4}, b:={b1,b2,b3}, c:={c1,c2,c3,c4,c5}
abc:={a,b,c}
g(x,y,z):=x+y+z
napply(g,abc) returns the sequence a1+b1+c1, a2+b2+c2, a3+b3+c3
which could be made into a vector by putting brackets or a list by putting braces around it, e.g. {napply(g,abc)}.

Hello,
Yes it is. On the weekend I will write program to evaluate any function with any number of variables any number of times. For the example I was giving in this thread if you do something only one or two times on the command line in CAS or in HOME you do not need "EXECON" or "apply" etc. You can use the period "." to indicate element by element operation and you done. For ex. (l1.+l2)./((l3.-l2).^2) and pronto you have what you wanted, but to do that in prgm. in CAS it would be more complicated and I will do that on the weekend.

Cheers

Very nice program!
I did not expect that: I wanted to mean "write a loop for your particular problem", not "write a generic program", because I find myself functional style difficult to write (and even more difficult to read).
But now that it is written, everyone can use it!

RE: Suggestion for EXECON.
Hello,

Here is my very crude prgm. CASEXECON that works in CAS and with symbolics. The expression must be a string and the second argument must be a list. It works with lists entered as list of lists or as a list of store variables that contain lists.

EXPORT CASEXECON(str_expr,lst)
//Argument "str_expr" must be a strings and
//all lists must be in curly brackets.
//example: CASEXECON("(&2-&1*&2)",{{1,2},{3,4}}
//or CASEXECON("(&2-&1*&2)",{l1,l2}).
BEGIN
local out;
out:=EXECON("CAS("""+str_expr+""")",lst);
IF size(out)==1 THEN
out:=out(1);
END;
return(out);

END;

Cheers
