Array::range(3) Get a range of integers


[Int] range( Int first, Int last, Int step=1 )


first The first value in the returned array

last The limit of the last value in the returned array

step The difference between adjacent values (cannot be zero!). This argument is optional and defaults to 1.


Return an array of values from [ first

last ], incrementing by step

 xs = range(1,5); // [1,2,3,4,5]
 xs = range(1,5,2); // [1,3,5]
 xs = range(1,5,3); // [1,4]
 xs = range(8,4,-1); // [8,7,6,5,4]

The usual way of calling the range function is using the [first..last] or [first,second..last] syntax.

 xs = [1..5]; // [1,2,3,4,5]
 xs = [1,3..5]; // [1,3,5]
 xs = [1,4..5]; // [1,4]
 xs = [8,7..4]; // [8,7,6,5,4]
