When all the elements in a sorted set are inserted with the same score, in order to force lexicographical ordering, this command removes all elements in the sorted set stored at `key`

between the lexicographical range specified by `min`

and `max`

.

The meaning of `min`

and `max`

are the same of the ZRANGEBYLEX command. Similarly, this command actually returns the same elements that ZRANGEBYLEX would return if called with the same `min`

and `max`

arguments.

## *Return value

Integer reply: the number of elements removed.
