// fill a mutable list of ten elements with zeros
val ints = MutableList(10) { 0 }

The Kotlin REPL shows how these approaches work:

AppleScript list FAQ: How do I create lists in AppleScript?

There are several different ways to create AppleScript lists. Let's take a look at a few examples.

The LaTeX example below shows how to create your own command named packed_enum. After you define this command, just use it instead of enumerate or itemize, and your line spacing will essentially be reduced to single line spacing.
