REBOL Programming/extract

USAGE:Edit

EXTRACT series width /index pos /default value /into output 

DESCRIPTION:Edit

Extracts a value from a series at regular intervals.

EXTRACT is a function value.

ARGUMENTSEdit

  • series -- (Type: series)
  • width -- Size of each entry (the skip) (Type: integer)

REFINEMENTSEdit

  • /index -- Extract from an offset position
    • pos -- The position (Type: any)
  • /default -- Use a default value instead of none
    • value -- The value to use (will be called each time if a function) (Type: any)
  • /into -- Insert into a buffer instead (returns position after insert)
    • output -- The buffer series (modified) (Type: series)

(SPECIAL ATTRIBUTES)Edit

  • catch
