Subranges of lists

It is possible to access one list element with the [] operator. I am a little bit astonished why it has not become a standard to access list ranges using [] together with an IntRange argument like myList[3..7]. But fortunately, you can extend Kotlin to accomplish this:

operator fun <E> List<E>.get(range: IntRange): List<E> {
    return sublist(range.first, range.last + 1)
}
