Overview

The remove index deluge task removes an element from a list based on a specified index, and returns that element.

Index refers to the position of elements in a list, and it starts from 0. So the index of the first element in the list will be 0, of the second element will be 1, and so on.

Syntax

<variable> = <list_variable>.remove(<index>);
ParameterDescription

<variable>

(optional)

Variable which will contain the returned value.

<list_variable>

The list variable from which an element has to be removed and returned.

Data type is List.

<index>

Index of the element which needs to be removed from the list and returned.

Value should not be a negative number. If a negative number is specified, or the index is not found, a runtime error will be encountered. 

Value should not exceed the list size. Ideally, this limit will be list size minus 1, since index starts from 0.
 
Data type is Number.
