Sequence -- the class of all sequences -- (...)

Description

A sequence is an ordered collection of things enclosed by parentheses and separated by commas. Use # to get the length of a sequence of to get one of the elements.

 i1 : v = (a,b,c) o1 = (a, b, c) o1 : Sequence i2 : #v o2 = 3 i3 : v#2 o3 = c o3 : Symbol

To convert sequences to and from other types of BasicList, in addition to toSequence, 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
