i made two abstractions for mapping operations to all elements of a list. (i think) [vListMap] has the same functionality as [list-map] from the list-abs library, and [vArrayMap] works with arrays instead of list and only accepts numbers as elements but needs only ~ half the time of [vListMap]. with [vArrayMap] i tried to access a pd [array] as a data structure array, it seems to be the fastest method.
like someone else mentioned before: also a lot of the other (useful) list-abs abstractions could be optimized with newer objects like [text store] and [array].
