Lists

A list is a series of values arranged one after the other and separated by a delimiter. These values do not have to be in any particular order. The delimiter that separates the items in a list can be any character. Most commonly, the delimiter is a comma.

Having said that, you should know that a list is not really a complex data type. However, manipulation of lists more closely resembles the manipulation of a complex data type than that of a simple data type. ColdFusion sees the list as a string. As long as ColdFusion understands which character in the string is the delimiter, it can process each value in the list separately.
