© August 2004 Tony Lawrence

This is a tuple:

1,2,fred,7,barney
 

Specifically that's a 5-tuple. An n-tuple would be a list like that of indeterminate length. That tuple uses commas to separate its members, but the separator isn't what makes it a tuple.

If you hear someone using this word, they are either a mathematician, or they program in a language like Lisp or Python that makes heavy use of such data structures.
