4.2.10 LIST Files

The conventional suffix for a LIST file is .list.

A list of OOGL objects



Note that there's no explicit separation between the oogl-objects, so they should be enclosed in curly braces ({ }) for sanity. Likewise there's no explicit marker for the end of the list; unless appearing alone in a disk file, the whole construct should also be wrapped in braces, as in:

        { LIST { QUAD ... } { < xyz.quad } }

A LIST with no elements, i.e. { LIST }, is valid, and is the easiest way to create an empty object. For example, to remove a symbol's definition you might write

        { define somesymbol  { LIST } }
