Reverse lookup ?

October 24, 2012 | 6:59 pm

I’m trying to map values based on a look up table.
I have two lists and have looked at zl lookup, but I’d like something that works
kind of in reverse.

Say I have 36 37 38 39 40 and I want to output a b c d e,
how can I achieve this ?

don’t quite understand what you’re getting at, but have you looked at coll or in fact the table object? there’s also funbuff too. these might be of use.
if you need to convert a list to a series of iterated values you can use iter; and collect the results back into a list using zl group or zl stream or thresh
hope that’s of some help
