lrange(n)		     Tcl Built-In Commands		     lrange(n)


       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.  The index values │
       first and last are interpreted the same as index values for the command │
       string index, supporting simple index arithmetic and  indices  relative │
       to  the	end 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  are  not
       enclosed in braces); it does, however, produce exactly the same results
       as “list [lindex list first]”

       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
	      % set var {some {elements to} select}
	      some {elements to} select
	      % lindex $var 1
	      elements to
	      % lrange $var 1 1
	      {elements to}
