Yikes!  I didn't read that right.  First I was trying the parse the 
part to the right of the "to/from" as a Transcript expression and 
couldn't.  Then I saw the quotes and thought it was a literal string 
that is interpreted some how.  Now i realize the bracketed part is 
probably computed.




item 4 of a

... when b is the fourth field of a.

My function comment makes no sense in that case.

This is much like an array operation.
