Generic Range Class

Often code has a bad smell,nbsp;then it gets time to replace customnbsp;lines by common patterns. Sometimes it even makes sense to even replace a single line of code by a class just wrapping that single line (which actually increases code size), if that makes readers better understand what the code does. Unfortunately often such patterns are publiclynbsp;known butnbsp;do not exist as ready to use classes in the JRE, sonbsp;one needs to write them again and again. To not make people having to type again and again, I typically uploadnbsp;mine tonbsp;the web, so everybody is free to share it.
