cdr function takes a List cell as argument, and
returns the contents of the cdr field:
Stack: "a" "d" cons Stack: <cons> cdr Stack: "d"
This function is usually pronounced "could'er".
Modern languages often use more logical names like
rest for this function.
cdr stands for "Contents of
Decrement Register", referring to the machine instruction
used to implement this in the first Lisp, on an IBM 704 at
MIT in the late 1950s.)
