Hi List, 

as far as I understand, property lists in PicoLisp are kind of reversed:

| ((val1 . key1)(val2 . key2) ...(valN . keyN))

while association lists are not. 

But what are the other differences?

Are plists only used as property lists of symbols, or can they exist
independently like in Emacs Lisp (with a different set of accessor

Are plists always built with cons cells and alists only sometimes?

The characteristics and differences between plists and alists are
described in the Emacs Lisp manual, but I don't know if this holds for
all Lisps or only Emacs Lisp.

I guess in PicoLisp it might be a different story?
