exponents -- list the exponents in a polynomial

Description

exponents m -- for a monomial m provides the list of exponents.
exponents f -- for a polynomial f provides a list whose elements are the lists of exponents of the terms of f.

i1 : R = ZZ/101[x,y,z];
i2 : exponents (f = x^2 - 7 + x*y*z^11 + y)

o2 = {{1, 1, 11}, {2, 0, 0}, {0, 1, 0}, {0, 0, 0}}

o2 : List
i3 : leadMonomial f

          11
o3 = x*y*z

o3 : R
i4 : exponents leadMonomial f

o4 = {{1, 1, 11}}

o4 : List
