NAME
       list - Create a list

SYNOPSIS
       list ?arg arg ...?


DESCRIPTION
       This  command  returns  a  list  comprised of all the args, or an empty
       string(3,n) if(3,n) 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  dif-
       ferent  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}
