I'm sorry for my post repeatly. I am using google to post on
internet-bar( low speed ), not tin likes clients.

There something wrong in function `random-list', right? I think
the key is: (setq list (cons (random n) list)). But I don't know
why.

Would you(or others) give an reasonable explanation? Thanks
