NAME
lappend - Append list elements onto a variable SYNOPSIS
lappend varName ?value value value ...? _________________________________________________________________ DESCRIPTION
This command treats the variable given by varName as a list and appends each of the value arguments to that list as a separate element, with spaces between elements. If varName doesn't exist, it is created as a list with elements given by the value arguments. Lappend is similar to append except that the values are appended as list elements rather than raw text. This command provides a relatively efficient way to build up large lists. For example, ``lappend a $b'' is much more efficient than ``set a [concat $a [list $b]]'' when $a is long. EXAMPLE
Using lappend to build up a list of numbers. % set var 1 1 % lappend var 2 1 2 % lappend var 3 4 5 1 2 3 4 5 SEE ALSO

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]'' EXAMPLES
Selecting the first two elements: % lrange {a b c d e} 0 1 a b Selecting the last three elements: % lrange {a b c d e} end-2 end c d e Selecting everything except the first and last element: % lrange {a b c d e} 1 end-1 b c d Selecting a single element with lrange is not the same as doing so with lindex: % set var {some {elements to} select} some {elements to} select % lindex $var 1 elements to % lrange $var 1 1 {elements to} SEE ALSO
