to could be exclusive and "thru" inclusive like parse. Don't know what you do about the range start though. .. is quite concise (if barely legible on my monitor ;) ). So if we were lucky enough to get some range math use a .. b for an inclusive range as suggested before. a <.. b for an exclusive start point and inclusive end point a ..> b you can guess a <..> b a range that does not include the end points Brett.
