limit() function

Warning! This page documents an earlier version of Flux, which is no longer actively developed. Flux v0.65 is the most recent stable version of Flux.

The limit() function limits the number of records in output tables to a fixed number (n). One output table is produced for each input table. Each output table contains the first n records after the first offset records of the input table. If the input table has less than offset + n records, all records except the first offset ones are output.
