```I don't believe there's any standard way to do exactly what you want.

A close approximation would be to use 'matrix', e.g.

apply('matrix,makelist(makelist(f(i*0.05),i,1,4),f,[fa,fb,fc,fd]))

This arranges the results in neat rows and columns, but *centers* numbers
rather than aligning the decimal points.

I suppose you could change that by preformatting the numbers, e.g.

apply('matrix,makelist(makelist(
?format(false,"~8,5f",f(i*0.05)),i,1,4),f,[fa,fb,fc,fd]))

where ?format is the Common Lisp format function.
