  esProc offers sequence functions that handle sequence values.

Ø  A(i)

Get a member from a sequence

Ø  A(i)=x

Assign values to members of a sequence

Ø  A(p)

Create a new sequence by getting members from a sequence according to the ordinal numbers of members of an integer sequence

Ø  A(p)=X

Assign members of sequence X to corresponding members of another sequence in order

Ø  A(p)=x

Assign value x to corresponding members of another sequence

Ø  A.delete()

Delete specified members from a sequence

Ø  A.i()

Convert a specified sequence to a pure sequence

Ø  A.pad()

Add members of a sequence to another one until the latter reaches a certain length

Ø  A.rvs()

Generate a new sequence by reversing the members in a sequence

Ø  A.shift()

Get a shuffled sequence

Ø  A.step()

Create a sequence by getting members from a sequence according to the specified starting position and step

Ø  A.swap()

Generate a new sequence by swapping the positions of two intervals in a sequence specified by two integer sequences

Ø  A.to()
