lrange

lrange(n)                    Tcl Built-In Commands                   lrange(n)



______________________________________________________________________________

NAME
       lrange - Return one or more adjacent elements from a list

SYNOPSIS
       lrange list first last
_________________________________________________________________


DESCRIPTION
       List must be a valid Tcl list.  This command will return a new list
       consisting of elements first through last, inclusive.  First or last
       may be end (or any abbreviation of it) to refer to the last element of
       the list.  If first is less than zero, it is treated as if it were
       zero.  If last is greater than or equal to the number of elements in
       the list, then it is treated as if it were end.  If first is greater
       than last then an empty string is returned.  Note: ``lrange list first
       first'' does not always produce the same result as ``lindex list
       first'' (although it often does for simple fields that aren't enclosed
       in braces); it does, however, produce exactly the same results as
       ``list [lindex list first]''
