Command Reference: ta

A sophisticated yet simple way to build an array of a user defined data-type

Description

murex has a pretty sophisticated builtin for generating arrays. It works a little bit like Bash's {1..9} syntax but includes a few additional nifty features and the output format is user defined.

Usage

ta: data-type [start..end] -> <stdout>
ta: data-type [start..end.base] -> <stdout>
ta: data-type [start..end,start..end] -> <stdout>
ta: data-type [start..end][start..end] -> <stdout>

Examples

» ta: json [1..5]
[
    "1",
    "2",
    "3",
    "4",
    "5"
]

» ta: json [Monday..Sunday]
[
    "Monday",
    "Tuesday",
    "Wednesday",
    "Thursday",
    "Friday",
    "Saturday",
    "Sunday"
]

Please note that as per the first example, all arrays generated by ta are arrays of strings - even if you're command is ranging over integers. Also if you are only creating arrays in JSON then you could use ja instead.

Detail

Please read the documentation on a for a more detailed breakdown on of ta's supported features.
