“It is not that I'm so smart. But I stay with the questions much longer.” ― Albert Einstein

“The more I read, the more I acquire, the more certain I am that I know nothing.” ― Voltaire

“Study hard what interests you the most in the most undisciplined, irreverent and original manner possible.” ― Richard P. Feynman

“I think the big mistake in schools is trying to teach children anything, and by using fear as the basic motivation. Fear of getting failing grades, fear of not staying with your class, etc. Interest can produce learning on a scale compared to fear as a nuclear explosion to a firecracker.” ― Stanley Kubrick

“We are all failures- at least the best of us are.” ― J.M. Barrie

“Learning is not child's play; we cannot learn without pain.” ― Aristotle

“Learning never exhausts the mind.” ― Leonardo da Vinci

“I’ve seen how you can’t learn anything when you’re trying to look like the smartest person in the room.” ― Barbara Kingsolver

“The authority of those who teach is often an obstacle to those who want to learn.” ― Cicero

“Real learning comes about when the competitive spirit has ceased.” ― Jiddu Krishnamurti

“For the best return on your money, pour your purse into your head.” ― Benjamin Franklin

“The formulation of the problem is often more essential than its solution, which may be merely a matter of mathematical or experimental skill.” ― Albert Einstein

@rm-rf : though I have read Leonoid's book many times in my initial days with Mathematica, I will certainly go through it once more. Thanks for link.

comment Conceptual understanding of patterns
@Jens: No I wasn't aware of it, thanks for sharing it. I meant Blank,BlankSequence and BlankNullSequence. I have used Maxima as a platform, it could be done in Java,C or any other language. If you suggest I will remove this link to Maxima code, but its just proof of concept that this approach works.

comment Conceptual understanding of patterns
@belisarius : I just wanted to know that if I go with this strategy, will it work for all the possible pattern scenarios for input lists. Are there some scenarios that will fail if I look at the problem this way. Sorry, I don't have question on a specific problem but on sort of algorithmic approach.

comment Convert list to sequence
Apply seems a good option to. But using {{a,b},{c,d}}/.List->Sequence should be applied only once as a replace once rule, but it goes down the list generating Sequence[a, b, c, d]

I tried using slotsequence,looks like I wasn't getting the syntax right. Thanks :)

comment Convert list to sequence
I generally don't face it, in fact I have answered 2-3 questions that used it, but I don't know what the problem is. It is converting all sublists to sequences.
