The BOOST_PP_LIST_CONS macro is a list constructor.

Usage

BOOST_PP_LIST_CONS(head, tail)

Arguments

head
An element in a list.
tail
Either a list, BOOST_PP_LIST_NIL, or BOOST_PP_NIL.

Remarks

This macro appends a new head to an existing list or creates a list from BOOST_PP_LIST_NIL.
This macro is no longer necessary.  For example...
BOOST_PP_LIST_CONS(a, BOOST_PP_LIST_CONS(b, BOOST_PP_LIST_NIL)))
...is just an explicit way of writing the following:
(a, (b, BOOST_PP_NIL))
Because of this, this macro is deprecated.

Sample Code

#include <boost/preprocessor/list/adt.hpp>

#define OLD \
   BOOST_PP_LIST_CONS( \
      a, \
      BOOST_PP_LIST_CONS( \
         b, \
         BOOST_PP_LIST_CONS( \
            c, \
            BOOST_PP_LIST_NIL \
         ) \
      ) \
   ) \
   /**/

#define NEW (a, (b, (c, BOOST_PP_NIL)))

BOOST_PP_LIST_FIRST(OLD) == BOOST_PP_LIST_FIRST(NEW)
   // expands to a == a

BOOST_PP_LIST_REST(OLD) == BOOST_PP_LIST_REST(NEW)
   // expands to (b, (c, BOOST_PP_NIL)) == (b, (c, BOOST_PP_NIL))
