Maybe you could turn it into a puzzle and let other people do the untangling :-) – Heike

@gpap it would be better to flag as a duplicate, especially if you are certain, rather than post an answer. If it is not clear post your answer and leave a comment (preferably under the question) that you think X might be a duplicate. Please do not down-vote duplicate questions unless the user appears to never show any effort to find existing questions.

Now I think the question gpap links to is a duplicate of this one, but as I was too quick to close before I'll wait for community votes. Possible duplicate: (14858)

I believe this is the related quesiton I was thinking of and it's not a duplicate, but perhaps interesting nevertheless: (11772)

comment Tick marks shrinking with ImageResolution
It is possible to export to PDF and get the proper tick sizing using Export["demo.pdf", barchart, ImageSize -> 600, ImageResolution -> 600] -- this could then be rasterized. Is this of use to you? Actually, since your question is focused on export I think it is, and that perhaps it's not a duplicate after all. Sorry to have been hasty. :-/

@swish you mean like: lst ~#~ {1, -1, 2}] & /@ {Take, Drop}?

comment Iterate until condition is met
@nick Thank you, I hope this method serves you well. If you are handling a very large problem you'll want to save results as you go, like this.

@nickjamesuk I'm largely the one to blame for the proliferation of that syntax around here. It apparently trips up a lot of people upon first seeing it, but after extensive use I find that it is often easier to read than the nested-bracket nightmares that can be the alternative. If you use a string of infix, as shown in Rojo's answer, it is very important IMHO to add space around each operator to distinguish these from arguments. Once this is done however code reads left to right in a logical fashion, e.g. a ~p~ b ~q~ c ~r~ d, which is equivalent to r[q[p[a, b], c], d].
