# Array -- the class of all arrays -- [...]

## Description

An array can be created by enclosing elements of any type in brackets.

 i1 : x = [a,b,c] o1 = [a, b, c] o1 : Array i2 : # x o2 = 3 i3 : x#1 o3 = b o3 : Symbol

To convert arrays to and from other types of BasicList, one may use new.

 i4 : new Array from {a,b,c} o4 = [a, b, c] o4 : Array i5 : new Sequence from [a,b,c] o5 = (a, b, c) o5 : Sequence

For an overview of lists and sequences, see lists and sequences.
