Basic Examples  (5)

Take sublists of different lengths from a list of symbols:

Take sublists from the end:

Take two elements, then three elements, and then all the rest:

Take two elements, then three elements, and then up to 10 and five if present:

Take a list of subexpressions from an expression with any head:

Scope  (2)

Take sublists using different sequence specifications:

Take subblocks of different sizes from a matrix:

Properties & Relations  (5)

TakeList[list,seqs] is equivalent to FoldPairList[TakeDrop,list,seqs]:

TakeList[list,{n,,n}] is equivalent to Partition[list,n] for an appropriate number of take specifications:

The equivalent of Partition[list,UpTo[n]] may require an additional take specification:

Subdivide a list in sublists of different lengths using TakeList:

The original list can be reconstructed using Flatten:

Subdivide an array in blocks of different sizes using TakeList:

The original matrix can be reconstructed with ArrayFlatten:

Take a list of expressions with the same head and any lengths:

Join those expressions into a single expression with the common head:

The original list can be reconstructed with TakeList by giving the lengths of the subexpressions:
