[PD] list operation

Try the attached (threw together using list-abs) -- right inlet is the
value (12 in your example) and left inlet is the list of floats; I
think this follows established list-abs syntax.

It's possible that I overlooked a list-abs that already does this, and
there is probably a step or two you could skip.

You might get poor results if the list is a bang or contains symbols.
