Javascript Question

Create array of all integers between two numbers, inclusive, in Javascript/jQuery

Say I have the following checkbox:

<input type="checkbox" value="1-25" />


To get the two numbers that define the boundaries of range I'm looking for, I use the following jQuery:

var value = $(this).val();
var lowEnd = Number(value.split('-')[0]);
var highEnd = Number(value.split('-')[1]);


How do I then create an array that contains all integers between
lowEnd
and
highEnd
, including
lowEnd
and
highEnd
themselves? For this specific example, obviously, the resulting array would be:

[1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25]
