LISP - Dolist Construct


Advertisements

The dolist construct allows iteration through each element of a list.

For example, Create a new source code file named main.lisp and type the following code in it −

(dolist (n '(1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9))
   (format t "~% Number: ~d Square: ~d" n (* n n))
)

When you click the Execute button, or type Ctrl+E, LISP executes it immediately and the result returned is −

Number: 1 Square: 1
Number: 2 Square: 4
Number: 3 Square: 9
Number: 4 Square: 16
Number: 5 Square: 25
Number: 6 Square: 36
Number: 7 Square: 49
Number: 8 Square: 64
Number: 9 Square: 81
