in thread [Raku] Ranges in array slices

Hi there!

I'm not so sure, to be honest. I'm still very fresh with Raku.

From what I've gathered so far, you'll take range when you just need two ends of a stick, and sequence, when you need the stick.

EDIT:
Sequence can also be characterised by the accented stickiness of the stick, to continue this sticky metaphor. It's accented even over the idea of its end, to the effect that if an end of the stick doesn't meet the stickiness, then it's ignored. Example:
0, * + 2 ... 1
See, where it goes?

I wonder if it's grammatically possible to jump over both ends this way... (sic!)1

1) ...like this...
