CUSTOM FUNCTION: IndexList ( size )
© 2008 Debi Fuchs of Aptworks Consulting, debi@aptworks.com

Speedily (and with limited recursion) return an "index list" of integers from 0 to (size-1). This is useful mostly as a helper to various other functions.

NOTE: This implementation uses no recursion. (See IndexList_PartlyRecursive for a recursive version. It uses just a little more stack space, but is slightly faster than this one.)
