NAME
       list - Create a list

SYNOPSIS
       list ?arg arg ...?
_________________________________________________________________

DESCRIPTION
       This  command  returns a list comprised of all the args, or an empty string if no args are
       specified.  Braces and backslashes get added as necessary, so that the lindex command  may
       be  used  on the result to re-extract the original arguments, and also so that eval may be
       used to execute the resulting list, with arg1 comprising the command's name and the  other
       args  comprising  its  arguments.   List  produces slightly different results than concat:
       concat removes one level of grouping before forming the list, while  list  works  directly
       from the original arguments.  For example, the command
	      list a b {c d e} {f {g h}}
       will return
	      a b {c d e} {f {g h}}
       while concat with the same arguments will return
	      a b c d e f {g h}
