I'm learning Scala and lift at the same time and I got stuck on understanding the syntax used to inintialize the SiteMap in the Boot.scala:
val entries = Menu(Loc("Home", "/", "Home")) ::
Menu(Loc("Foo", "/badger", "Foo")) ::
Menu(Loc("Directory Foo", "/something/foo", "Directory Foo")) :: Nil
What exactly is the meaning of the SiteMap parameter?
I see that the value entries is a list of Menu. What is the colon, underscore, star?
At first I thought it is a method on the List, but I am unable to find such definition...
