Example: Construct List with Single Value Using list() Function

The following R programming syntax demonstrates how to create a list with only one single list item.

For this task, we simply have to specify the value that we want to use within the list function.

Have a look at the following R code and its RStudio console output:

my_list <- list(10)        # Create list
my_list                    # Print list
# [[1]]
# [1] 10

We have created a list containing the single value 10.
