It seems that Mathematica is capable of taking free-form input that acts on previous outputs (see "separate color channels"), but I'm having trouble getting it to work in my case.
=countries on the caspian sea returning a useful list of countries, but when I say
=flags of those countries, Mathematica seems to not understand that I'm referring back to the output of the previous step. Even if I had to say
=map over those explicitly, I'd be happy to, but it doesn't seem to work.
So a few possible thoughts on what would help solve my problem:
- Are there any attempts anywhere at writing down the sorts of things that one should expect free-form input to support? I'm willing to learn how to speak its language if it'll help me help it help me.
- Does anyone have a successful example of
Mapping over a list using free-form linguistic input?
