## @deftypefn  {Function File} @var{s} = zenity_list(@var{title}, @var{columns}, @var{data}, @var{options1}, ...)
## Displays a graphical list of data.
## The variable @var{title} sets the title of the list. The variable
## @var{columns} must be a cell array of strings of length N containing the headers
## of the list. The variable @var{data} must be cell array of strings of
## length NxM containing the data of the list.
##
## The code
## @example
## zenity_list("Age versus Height", @{"Age", "Height"@}, 
## @{"10", "20"; "120cm", "180cm"@})
## @end example
## produces a list of the data. The user can select a row in the table, and it's
## first value will be returned by the function when the user closes the window.
##
## It's possible to alter the behaviour of the list window by passing more than
## three arguments to the funtion. Theese optional string arguments can be
## @table @samp
## @item checklist
## The first row in the list will be a check box. The first value of each data row
## must be either "TRUE" or "FALSE".
## @item radiolist
## The first row in the list will be a radio list. The first value of each data row
## must be either "TRUE" or "FALSE".
## @item editable
## The values of the list will be editable by the user.
## @item A numeric value
## The value returned by the function will be the value of this column
## of the user selected row.
## @item all
## The value returned by the function will be the entire row selected by the user.
## @end table
##
## @seealso{zenity_calendar, zenity_progress, zenity_entry, zenity_message,
## zenity_text_info, zenity_file_selection, zenity_notification}
