The List and Field methods provide you with the ability to search, add, edit and delete Lists and their Fields. Lists (also called Contact Lists) contain your system's Contacts, and Fields contain the details about them. Lists are created for different purposes, so they may have the same or different Fields. For example, you might have a Purchaser List that includes a text array for items the Contact has purchased and a Newsletter Subscriber List with a Weekly Summary checkbox.
When you create a List using the API, it only has a few user Fields (as well as several metadata Fields). You can add Fields afterwards using addField.
