min(int(9*\$x),8) is perfect thanks all :-)

Oh ... off by max, again! ;-)

##### update

I wouldn't count on correct input though, and additional max seems safe

```  DB<5> print \$_,":",max(min(int(9*\$_/18),8),0),"\n" for -2..20
-2:0
-1:0
0:0
1:0
2:1
3:1

20:8

The subexpression 9*X/18 == (9x)/18 == x/2. Therefore, max(min(int(\$_ / 2), 8, 0);

The core of the formula was 9*\$v I was just trying to cover all edges cases for \$v in a one liner.

>> min(int(9*\$x),8)

When number of intervals vary (not only 9), then this looks more general:
my \$intervals = 9; min( int( \$intervals * \$x ), \$intervals - 1 )
or:
my \$intervals = 9; int( \$intervals * \$x ) - int \$x
