NAME
       lreplace - Replace elements in a list with new elements

SYNOPSIS
       lreplace list first last ?element element ...?
_________________________________________________________________

DESCRIPTION
       lreplace returns a new list formed by replacing one or more elements of list with the ele-
       ment arguments.	first and last specify the first and last index of the range of  elements
       to  replace.   0  refers to the first element of the list, and end (or any abbreviation of
       it) may be used to refer to the last element of the list.  If list is  empty,  then  first
       and last are ignored.

       If  first  is  less than zero, it is considered to refer to the first element of the list.
       For non-empty lists, the element indicated by first must exist.

       If last is less than zero but greater than first, then  any  specified  elements  will  be
       prepended  to  the list.  If last is less than first then no elements are deleted; the new
       elements are simply inserted before first.

       The element arguments specify zero or more new arguments to be added to the list in  place
       of  those  that were deleted.  Each element argument will become a separate element of the
       list.  If no element arguments are specified, then the elements between first and last are
       simply deleted.	If list is empty, any element arguments are added to the end of the list.
