a11e99z, JN, Paul:  Thank you all for your replies and help.  As 
I've mentioned on the list before, I really struggle to 
understand how some of the std.algorithm functions such as `map` 
work when combined with things like `array`, `sort` and 
especially `zip` but really appreciate the support I find here on 
the forum.
