[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: example:
>> c: columnize "abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz" 3
== ["ajs" "bkt" "clu" "dmv" "enw" "fox" "gpy" "hqz" "ir"]
>> repeat part c[print part]
ajs bkt clu dmv enw fox gpy hqz ir ; 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" Thanks Tim
