[R] Number in interval

Note that the precendence of %<=% is not the
same as that of <=, so you can be surprised by its
behavior in slightly more complex expressions:
> z <- seq(1.2, len=5, by=.7)
> which( 2 %<=% z %<=% 3 ) # same as which(2<=z & z<=3)
[1] 3
> which( 2 %<=% z %<=% 1.5*2 )
Error in which(2 %<=% z %<=% 1.5 * 2) :
argument to 'which' is not logical
