Clears all the elements in this list and releases their memory. After this call the list is still usable, but the list is empty (i.e. there are no elements in it).
List() The name of your list variable, created with the NewList function. You must include the brackets after the list name.
PureBasic will only free the memory for the elements. If you have been using the list for something such as storing handles of objects that you create directly with the OS, there is no way PureBasic (or any other language) can know what they are. Therefore, in cases such as that, you should go through the elements in the list and free the objects yourself.
