list.ungroup: Ungroup a list by taking out second-level elements

Description Usage Arguments See Also Examples

Description

This functon reverses the grouping operation by taking out second-level elements of a nested list and removing the labels of the first-level elements. For example, a list may be created from paged data, that is, its first-level elements only indicate the page container. To unpage the list, the first-level elements must be removed and their inner elements should be taken out to to the first level.
