The TOLIST parameter name is used in 2 ways in ISIS.
(1) blend, equalizer, hiequal, hijitter, and hidtmgen: The user must give the program the name of a file that already exists. This file contains a list of names to give the output image files created by the program.
(2) cnetadd and cnetextract: The user must give the program the name of a file that does not exist. This file will be created by the program and will contain a list of names of the cube files that are contained in the output control network.
