Tcl Built-In Commands
lrange - Return one or more adjacent elements from a list
lrange list first last
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
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]''
