Nice alternative for some cases but I do not get the desires result as one
long vector. I would change the last line to this:

                                     b) a[x]:b[x], 

The indenting works better using a constant-width font, LOL.

With all these twists, including using the base R methods like uppercase
Map, the relative speed of these methods comes to mind. No doubt someone
will suggest rewriting this as yet another C function for speed.

Hi -- there are lots of replies --I have not read them all, if someone else
suggested this, sorry for duplication. This is similar to the suggestion
using mapply, but not specific to matrices. In fact it's a kludge that
applies to many settings. You 'sapply' over the index 1:2, and pass a, b as

a <- c(1,4)
 b <- c(5,8)

sapply(1:2, FUN=function(x, a, b)a[x]:b[x], a=a,b=b)
