Any languages able to program (0,1] mathematical interval
Mathematicians often use brackets to indicate whether or not a limit value is included or excluded, e.g. (0,9] might be programmed as 0<=x<9... I don't use that syntax often so wouldn't be sure which bracket is which without checking. Update: It seems I have the brackets the wrong way round.

Are there any programming languages that recognise that syntax directly, thereby avoiding the need to check and code it differently?

I am mainly interested in mainstream languages (Basic, C, Lua, Python ... And of course HP PPL) rather than Mathematica and the like.

Alternatively, is there a different way of writing such an interval concisely, yet making which is included/excluded clearer.
