In Lisp, a list looks like this:
'(rose violet daisy buttercup).
This list is preceded by a single apostrophe. It could just as well be
written as follows, which looks more like the kind of list you are likely
to be familiar with:
'(rose violet daisy buttercup)
The elements of this list are the names of the four different flowers, separated from each other by whitespace and surrounded by parentheses, like flowers in a field with a stone wall around them.
Numbers, Lists inside of Lists List have numbers, other lists, in them. 1.1.1 Lisp Atoms Elemental entities. 1.1.2 Whitespace in Lists Formating lists to be readable. 1.1.3 GNU Emacs Helps You Type Lists How GNU Emacs helps you type lists.
