hi! probably a very easy question, but i couldn't find an answer in the mathematica-book: i need to extract elements from a list, starting th element number x and than taking every yth element, eg: with list={a,b,c,d,e,f,g,h,i,j} start=3; step=2: i'd like to get the list {c,e,g,i}. how can i do this in the easiest way? regards, robert
