return one or more adjacent elements from a list
lrange list first last
list must be a valid Tcl list. This command
returns 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 are not enclosed in braces); it
does, however, produce exactly the same results as
list [lindex list first].
