# VisibleList -- the class of all visible lists

## Description

There are three types of lists that can be entered directly from the keyboard, as follows.
 i1 : {a,b,c} o1 = {a, b, c} o1 : List i2 : [a,b,c] o2 = [a, b, c] o2 : Array i3 : (a,b,c) o3 = (a, b, c) o3 : Sequence
We introduce the class of visible lists as a convenience for referring to lists of these types.

## Types of visible list :

• AngleBarList -- the class of lists delimited by <| ... |>
• Array -- the class of all arrays -- [...]
• List -- the class of all lists -- {...}
• Sequence -- the class of all sequences -- (...)
