[Tex/LaTex] Remove space around bullet points in itemized or enumerated list


How can I reduce the amount of space around items in an itemized or enumerated list? I would like to reduce the vertical space between items, the space to the left of the bullet, and the space between the bullet and the text.

The paralist package provides compressed lists, the new environments are called compactitem, compactenum and compactdesc. Use it just like the corresponding standard list environments. It can even keep lists within a paragraph.

The enumitem provides more features but also compressed lists, for instance by


\setlist modifies all lists, \setitemize just itemize etc. It takes an optional parameter that stands for the level that should be changed, default it alters all levels. Since enumitem allows a lot more customization I prefer it over paralist, but the latter is easier to use and fits better to the question here.
