# to()

Here’s how to use to() function.

## A .to()

Description:

Get members of a sequence starting from a specified position to create a new sequence.

Syntax:

 A.to(a) From sequence A, generate a sequence composed of the first a members; when a<0, get members from the (A.len()+1+a)th one to the (A.len())th one A.to(a,b) From the sequence A, generate a sequence composed of the members from the ath to the bth. If omitting a, then start from the first member by default; if omitting b, get all members of A, that is A.len(), by default, and in this case the comma must not be omitted; if a>b, find the members backwards; members of the newly-generated sequence are ordered in an opposite direction relative to their original order

Note:

The function generates a sequence composed of the members from the ath to the bth according to sequence A. If omitting a, start from the first member by default; If omitting b, get members to the last one, that is A.len() by default.

Options:

 @z(i,n) Split a sequence into a number of segments (the number is n), and get and return the ith segment. If the number of members in the sequence can’t be evenly divided, the additional members will be returned along with the last segment

Parameters:

 A A sequence. a The integer specifying the starting position. b The integer specifying the ending position.

Return value:

A sequence

Example:

 [1,5,2,6,8].to(2,3) Return sequence [5,2] [1,5,2,6,8].to(3,2) Return sequence [2,5] [1,5,2,6,8].to(2) Return sequence [1,5] [1,5,2,6,8].to(-2) Return sequence [6,8] [1,5,2,6,8,7].to@z(2,3) Return sequence [2,6] to(8).to@z(1,3) Return sequence [1,2] to(8).to@z(3,3) Return sequence [5,6,7,8]

## to()

Description:

Generate an integer sequence.

Syntax:

 to(a,b) Generate a sequence composed of continuous integers between a and b. to(n) Generate a sequence composed of continuous integers from 1 to n.

Note:

The function generates a sequence composed of a set of continuous integers from a to b or from 1 to n.

Parameters:

 a The starting integer b The ending integer n n>0

Options:

 @s Generate a sequence composed of continuous b integers starting from a. If b is less than 0, generate the sequence backward sequentially in descending order.

Return value:

A continuous integer sequence

Example:

 A 1 =to(3,7) [3,4,5,6,7] 2 =to(5,3) [5,4,3] 3 =to(-2,3) [-2,-1,0,1,2,3] 4 =to(3,-2) [3,2,1,0,-1,-2] 5 =to@s(3,4) [3,4,5,6] 6 =to@s(3,-2) [3,2] 7 =to(10) [1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10]
