  From  The  Free  On-line  Dictionary  of  Computing  (13  Mar  01)  [foldoc]: 
 
  list 
 
    A  data  structure  holding  many  values,  possibly  of 
  different  types,  which  is  usually  accessed  sequentially, 
  working  from  the  head  to  the  end  of  the  tail  -  an  "ordered 
  list".  This  contrasts  with  a  (one-dimensional)  {array},  any 
  element  of  which  can  be  accessed  equally  quickly. 
 
  Lists  are  often  stored  using  a  cell  and  pointer  arrangement 
  where  each  value  is  stored  in  a  cell  along  with  an  associated 
  pointer  to  the  next  cell.  A  special  pointer,  e.g.  zero,  marks 
  the  end  of  the  list.  This  is  known  as  a  singlely  "linked 
  list".  A  doublely  linked  list  has  pointers  from  each  cell  to 
  both  next  and  previous  cells. 
 
  An  unordered  list  is  a  {set}.
