How do you create a list in Lisp that looks like this for an example: (generate-list 10 #'(lambda (n) (- n 2)) 5) => (10 8 6 4 2)

Like this:


(defun generate-list (start-num func iters)
(if (= 0 iters) '()
(cons start-num (generate-list (funcall func start-num) func (- iters 1)))))

[26]> (generate-list 10 (lambda (n) (- n 2)) 5)
(10 8 6 4 2)




Sharpquoting lambda expressions is unneccesary; they already return a function.
