Quoting from [Al--Bri--xtra--co--nz's] message (21-Aug-00 09:23:20). I like the range! idea. My two cents follow... A>> I like the use of "-" but I feel it will cause confusion if a negative is A> used in the range. A>> A>> -1--10 A> A> Actually, the lesser value should be first. So this should be: A> A> -10--1 I dissent. There could be situations needing inverted ranges, for example scientific calculation/simulation. Now that I mention that, the /delta refinement immediately springs to mind.
>> r1: 6-15.6
== 6-15.6
>> r1/delta
== 9.6
>> r2: 4--100
== 4--100
>> r2/delta
== -104 Alessandro Pini ([alex--pini--mclink--it]) Fasten your seatbelt. I'm gonna try something. (Solo)
