If, like me, you're always forgetting which way around your list/seq

slices need to go then worry no more. Just put my handy "slice

lookupper" (TM) ) on a (large!) PostIt beside your screen and, Hey

Presto! no more tediously typing a 1-9 seq into your interpreter and

then getting a slice just to check what you get.. (Yes you. You know

you do that !) ... Cheers Steve
