in thread Want for a name?

why no map_slice or map_splice? cause like slice/splice it returns a list ... and you're slicing the list you're iterating over

    Mostly, because splice (and slice syntax) allow complete control over where to start and how many.

    And library routine use those terms combined with map is going to have to be -- or at least feel the pressure to be -- equally flexible.

    And a) that flexibility would have a disastrous affect on both usability & efficiency for the simple case; b) I've never encountered a need for that flexibility; where the simple case can (and has for me in recent months), crop up very frequently.

    Also, splice modifies array, this just provides snapshots.
