       list - Create a list

       list ?arg arg ...?

       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  dif‐
       ferent  results	than  concat:	concat	removes	 one level of grouping
       before forming the list, while list works directly  from	 the  original

       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}
