3.19. List Operators (Rightward)

The right side of a list operator governs all the list operator's arguments, which are comma separated, so the precedence of a list operator is lower than a comma if you're looking to the right. Once a list operator starts chewing up comma-separated arguments, the only things that will stop it are tokens that stop the entire expression (like semicolons or statement modifiers), or tokens that stop the current subexpression (like right parentheses or brackets), or the low precedence logical operators we'll talk about next.
