It's not that easy to do the untangling even manually though. – Szabolcs

Maybe you could turn it into a puzzle and let other people do the untangling :-) – Heike

comment Create a new infix operator
You're right, unless you have some trick to Subscript ><. I shall reopen this question unless you do, as it is indeed a special instance. (Modifying an existing operator rather that creating a new one.)

Rojo, I closed this question because I found it to be a duplicate, but I don't wish to diminish your answer. Perhaps you would like to post a similar answer there, or perhaps since we are the only ones to have answered this question we could merge to the two questions after expanding this answer to address both examples.

antalstrempel, in the future if a question of yours is "put on hold" please do not post a new of nearly identical content; instead edit your question to improve it, to try to address reason for the [on hold]. In this case you didn't even answer my simple question above; please do so.

Sorry, I don't understand your question. You say a "table of 200 elements" -- is this a list (vector) or two dimensional table?

comment Transform elements in list from form {x_} to form {x_, 0}
@Peltio In my opinion you should always localize named patterns with RuleDelayed unless you specifically know you need different behavior. I suggested editing this answer to use :> in each case.

Is belisarius visiting? You seem to have adopted his sense of humor. ;) -- ps, I added a new method to my answer primarily inspired by yours; I think you might like it.
