Elixir v1.1.1 Range

Defines a Range.

A Range represents a discrete number of values where the first and last values are integers.

Ranges can be either increasing (first <= last) or decresing (first > last). Ranges are also always inclusive.

A Range is represented internally as a struct. However, the most common form of creating and matching on ranges is via the ../2 macro, auto-imported from Kernel:

iex> range = 1..3
1..3
iex> first .. last = range
iex> first
1
iex> last
3
