List literals can be nested:


List operators can be nested:

>perl -MO=Concise -e"@a=(1,(2,3,(4,5)),6,7)" j <@> leave[1 ref] vKP/REFC ->(end) 1 <0> enter ->2 2 <;> nextstate(main 1 -e:1) v:{ ->3 i <2> aassign[t3] vKS ->j - <1> ex-list lKP ->f 3 <0> pushmark s ->4 4 <$> const[IV 1] s ->5 c <@> list lKP ->d <-- This list... 5 <0> pushmark s ->6 6 <$> const[IV 2] s ->7 7 <$> const[IV 3] s ->8 b <@> list lKP ->c <-- ...has a list for operand 8 <0> pushmark s ->9 9 <$> const[IV 4] s ->a a <$> const[IV 5] s ->b d <$> const[IV 6] s ->e e <$> const[IV 7] s ->f - <1> ex-list lK ->i f <0> pushmark s ->g h <1> rv2av[t2] lKRM*/1 ->i g <#> gv[*a] s ->h -e syntax OK

List values can't be nested:

>perl -E"say for (1,(2,3,(4,5)),6,7)" 1 2 3 4 5 6 7
