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]''
