[R] question about ?list

From: ronggui <042045003_at_fudan.edu.cn>

the help page says:

 'is.list' returns 'TRUE' iff its argument is a 'list' _or_ a

     'pairlist' of 'length' > 0, whereas 'is.pairlist' only returns
     'TRUE' in the latter case.

does the "latter case" mean a 'pairlist' of 'length' > 0?

> is.pairlist(pairlist())

[1] TRUE
> length(pairlist())

[1] 0

what the help page exactly means?
