The list function creates a List from its arguments and returns the List. A period before the final argument sets the cdr of the list.


The list function is used to create a List from a collection of objects.




(list obj1 ... objn)

(list obj1 ... objn . cdrValue)

Arguments Name Type Description
Argument:objCharacter, String, Symbol, Vector, BitVector, ByteVector, IntVector, FltVector, ObjVector, Structure, Dictionary, Directory, Pair, List Matrix, NumMatrix, Integer, Float, Number, Complex, Brick An arbitrary number of objects.
Argument:.cdrValueCharacter, String, Symbol, Vector, BitVector, ByteVector, IntVector, FltVector, ObjVector, Structure, Dictionary, Directory, Pair, List Matrix, NumMatrix, Integer, Float, Number, Complex, Brick An optional cdr value (preceded by a period).


A List (a collection of pairs chained together).



Here are a number of links to Lambda coding examples which contain this instruction in various use cases.
