LON-CAPA will accept two pre-named arrays inside the answerblock for the computer algebra system: RESPONSE and LONCAPALIST. RESPONSE contains the student input by comman-separated entities, for example, if 3,42,17'' is entered by the student, RESPONSE[2] would be 42. LONCAPALIST is built from the arguments passed in an array \texttt{args} which is assigned a array value from the script.
