# toList -- create a list

## Description

 i1 : toList "foo" o1 = {f, o, o} o1 : List i2 : A = set(3,7,9,6) o2 = set {3, 6, 7, 9} o2 : Set i3 : toList A o3 = {9, 3, 6, 7} o3 : List

The command toList 1..9 will throw an error, because toList comes before .. in Macaulay2's order of operations. To create a list from a range, use toList (1..9) instead.

 i4 : toList (1..9) o4 = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9} o4 : List

Converting between list types may change the order of the elements in unexpected ways.

 i5 : toList set {4,5,13} o5 = {4, 13, 5} o5 : List
