Direc­tory macros/generic/lambda-lists

This is the lambda-lists package by Alan Jeffrey, for doing lists and
lambda calculus via expandable macros (a.k.a. in TeX's mouth).

For historical reasons, the code is available in a file named
lambda.sty; it runs under both plain TeX and LaTeX.  It is unrelated to
the lambda format that is part of Omega.

The documentation is in lambda-lists.{tex,pdf}.  It was originally
published as an article in TUGboat, vol.11, no.2, pp.237-245.

The entire package is released under the LPPL.  It consists of this
README, lambda.sty, lambda-lists.tex, and the derived file

lambda-lists – Lists in TeX's mouth

Th­ese list-pro­cess­ing macros avoid the re­as­sign­ments em­ployed in the macros shown in Ap­pendix D of the TeXbook: all the ma­nip­u­la­tions take place in what Knuth is pleased to call “TeX’s mouth”.
