The Limit X Clause immediately follows a numeric variable N and proscribes its valid ranges. X must always be a positive integer; X may not be 0.
[ N ] (operator) X
Common variants include:
- N ≤ X. N may be any integer less than X, inclusive.
- N ≥ X. N may be any integer larger than X, inclusive.
- Up to X. N may be any integer between 1 and X, inclusive.
- X–Y. N may be any integer between X and Y, inclusive.
In the latter two cases, the clause also replaces N.
