- standard procedure:
**list***object …* Returns a list of its arguments.

(list 'a (+ 3 4) 'c) ⇒ (a 7 c) (list) ⇒ ()

These expressions are equivalent:

(list

`obj1``obj2`…`objN`) (cons`obj1`(cons`obj2`… (cons`objN`'()) …))

- SRFI 1 procedure:
**make-list***n [fill]* Returns an

`n`-element list, whose elements are all the value`fill`. If the`fill`argument is not given, the elements of the list may be arbitrary values.(make-list 4 'c) ⇒ (c c c c)

- SRFI 1 procedure:
**cons****object object …* -
`cons*`

is similar to`list`

, except that`cons*`

conses together the last two arguments rather than consing the last argument with the empty list. If the last argument is not a list the result is an improper list. If the last argument is a list, the result is a list consisting of the initial arguments and all of the items in the final argument. If there is only one argument, the result is the argument.(cons* 'a 'b 'c) ⇒ (a b . c) (cons* 'a 'b '(c d)) ⇒ (a b c d) (cons* 'a) ⇒ a

These expressions are equivalent:

(cons*

`obj1``obj2`…`objN-1``objN`) (cons`obj1`(cons`obj2`… (cons`objN-1``objN`) …))

- SRFI 1 procedure:
**list-tabulate***k init-proc* - obsolete procedure:
**make-initialized-list***k init-proc* Returns a

`k`-element list. Element`i`of the list, where 0 <=`i`<`k`, is produced by (`init-proc``i`). No guarantee is made about the dynamic order in which`init-proc`is applied to these indices.(list-tabulate 4 values) => (0 1 2 3)

- SRFI 1 procedure:
**list-copy***list* Returns a newly allocated copy of

`list`. This copies each of the pairs comprising`list`. This could have been defined by(define (list-copy list) (if (null? list) '() (cons (car list) (list-copy (cdr list)))))

- SRFI 1 procedure:
**iota***count [start [step]]* Returns a list containing the elements

(

`start``start`+`step`…`start`+(`count`-1)*`step`)`Count`must be an exact non-negative integer, while`start`and`step`can be any numbers. The`start`and`step`parameters default to 0 and 1, respectively.(iota 5) ⇒ (0 1 2 3 4) (iota 5 0 -0.1) ⇒ (0 -0.1 -0.2 -0.3 -0.4)

- standard procedure:
**vector->list***vector [start [end]]* - obsolete procedure:
**subvector->list***vector start end* -
Returns a newly allocated list of the elements of

`vector`between`start`inclusive and`end`exclusive. The inverse of`vector->list`

is`list->vector`

.(vector->list '#(dah dah didah)) ⇒ (dah dah didah)
