  Function definition: (Copy & paste into FileMaker's Edit Custom Function window)

Returns a list of numbers starting at "start" and stopping at "stop" incrementing by "step".

If stop will never be reached or if step is 0, an out or range error will be simulated.

Both "start" and "step" are optional. Start's default value is 0 and step's default value is either 1 or -1 depending on if start is greater or less than stop.

This is based off the python range() function.
