Range Replicator

Description

A construct that replicates its contents (textually) at parse time. Each replication assigns a different, sequential value to the specified variable (similar to a for loop). This can be used, for example, to generate a separate Trial for each element in a Stimulus Group by using the replicator variable as the index in to the group.
