[REBOL] I need a better name (topology?)
From: tim:johnsons-web at: 19-Sep-2001 12:57
I've written a rebol function that takes as arguments a series
and a number (for columns) and remaps the original series to
a row/column format:
>> c: columnize "abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz" 3
== ["ajs" "bkt" "clu" "dmv" "enw" "fox" "gpy" "hqz" "ir"]
>> repeat part c[print part]
; now this is pretty handy, but it needs a better name than
; 'columnize, and I'm not just being trivial here, I believe
; there is a mathematical term that is more appropriate.
; but for the life of me, I can't recall it.
; knowing that term would help me to do non-rebol-specific
; research on algorithms
Any ideas? I don't think it is "topology"
