I am not sure of it. I would have to check the docs to see what it means.
The mathematical term is range, but it already has a meaning in Python, so
it is not a good way to go, being perhaps valuerange the  compromise,  but
not really clear by itself. In some areas, nevertheless, ptp is the
standard notation, as it is in electronics - and maybe that is why it made
its way into Numeric.
