I wish I could double-++ this. It is fantastic!

I needed exactly this a couple of days ago, and I ended up using Set::IntSpan. Oh well... :-)

    Thanks muchly. I'm working on one to change (4,5,6,11,12,13,14,19,20,21) to "4-6,11-4,19-21"

      I assume you meant "4-6,11-14,19-21"? If so, that's what this one does, isn't it? What am I missing?


        Your assumption is wrong. Have you never seen ranges like "read pages 121-3"?
