h = f_highest(src, length)
l = f_lowest(src, length)

These two pieces of code are probably the most used functions in Pine outside the built-ins, so thanks for them, Ricardo.

@LucF, discovered it today.... but was looking for them all my life. True story
This is great.. as I've noticed in version 3.. highest() and lowest() do not like taking in variables for length.. often results in:

line 34: Cannot call `highest` with arguments (series, series); available overloads: highest(series, integer) => series; highest(integer) => series;
