Re: how to generate piecewise function from two lists

This is straightforward using the function Partition:
In[21]:= f={a,b}; r={0,1,2}; With[{rr=Partition[r,2,1]}, Piecewise[Table[{f[[i]], rr[[i,1]]<x<rr[[i,2]]}, {i,1,Length[f]}]]] // InputForm
Out[23]//InputForm= Piecewise[{{a, 0 < x < 1}, {b, 1 < x < 2}}, 0]
