range

This function returns a list of numbers, starting from 0 (by default), increments by 1 (by default), and ends at a specified number.

Function range() may only be used for relatively small lists. An operation_err() (maximum range length exceeded) will be raised when trying to create a list with more than 1024 numbers.
