Tcl Built-In Commands
lindex - Retrieve an element from a list
lindex list index
This command treats list as a Tcl list and returns the
index'th element from it (0 refers to the first element of the list).
In extracting the element, lindex observes the same rules
concerning braces and quotes and backslashes as the Tcl command
interpreter; however, variable
substitution and command substitution do not occur.
If index is negative or greater than or equal to the number
of elements in value, then an empty
string is returned.
If index has the value end, it refers to the last element
in the list.
element, index, list
