I want to produce {Foo[a,b, c], Goo[a, b, c], Hoo[a, b, c]}. However my attempt below

Thread[Apply[{Foo, Goo, Hoo}, HoldComplete@Sequence[a, b, c]]]

produces {Foo, Goo, Hoo}[a, b, c].

Could you fix it?

  • $\begingroup$ Construct[#, Sequence[a,b,c]] & /@ {Foo, Goo, Hoo} ... or if you want to keep the hold and release: ReleaseHold[Construct[#, HoldComplete@Sequence[x, y, z]] & /@ {Foo, Goo, Hoo}] $\endgroup$ – flinty Jun 11 '20 at 0:45

Consider Through:

Through[{Foo, Goo, Hoo} @@ {a, b, c}]
{Foo[a, b, c], Goo[a, b, c], Hoo[a, b, c]}

Alternatively, use it as:

Through @ {Foo, Goo, Hoo}[a, b, c]
{Foo[a, b, c], Goo[a, b, c], Hoo[a, b, c]}

Or make it into a function:

boohoo = Through[# @@ #2] &;

{Foo, Goo, Hoo} ~ boohoo ~ {a, b, c}
 {Foo[a, b, c], Goo[a, b, c], Hoo[a, b, c]}


Let me know if you need an explanation. I figure a list of both functions and arguments would be the simplest method. Then I just made sure the Map over the functions would cause them to Apply to the arguments.
