LRANGE key start stop
Available since
Time complexity
O(S+N) where S is the distance of start offset from HEAD for small lists, from nearest end (HEAD or TAIL) for large lists; and N is the number of elements in the specified range.
ACL categories
@read, @list, @slow

Returns the specified elements of the list stored at key. The offsets start and stop are zero-based indexes, with 0 being the first element of the list (the head of the list), 1 being the next element and so on.

These offsets can also be negative numbers indicating offsets starting at the end of the list. For example, -1 is the last element of the list, -2 the penultimate, and so on.

Consistency with range functions in various programming languages #

Note that if you have a list of numbers from 0 to 100, LRANGE list 0 10 will return 11 elements, that is, the rightmost item is included. This may or may not be consistent with behavior of range-related functions in your programming language of choice (think Ruby’s, Array#slice or Python’s range() function).

Out-of-range indexes #

Out of range indexes will not produce an error. If start is larger than the end of the list, an empty list is returned. If stop is larger than the actual end of the list, Redict will treat it like the last element of the list.

Examples #

RPUSH mylist "one"
RPUSH mylist "two"
RPUSH mylist "three"
LRANGE mylist 0 0
LRANGE mylist -3 2
LRANGE mylist -100 100
LRANGE mylist 5 10
