$("tr").slice(2,5); //selects the <tr> elements between 2 and 4 inclusive $("p").slice(1,-1); //selects all <p> elments except the first and last
.slice(start, [end]) method removes elements before index
start and after index
end and returns only the items in between. This allows you to break large selections into smaller chunks. The indexes are zero based. A negative
end indicates the offset from the end of the list, where –1 is the last element and –2 is the second to the last element.
