Take values smaller than a threshold in a list or association
ResourceFunction["TakeSmaller"][list,val,n] gives the largest n elements in list that are smaller than val. 

ResourceFunction["TakeSmaller"][list→prop,val,n] gives the property prop for the n elements in list that are smaller than val. 

ResourceFunction["TakeSmaller"][val,n] represents an operator form of ResourceFunction["TakeSmaller"] that can be applied to an expression. 
Take two numbers smaller than the specified value in a list:
In[1]:= 

Out[1]= 

In[2]:= 

Out[2]= 

Do the same using the operator form of TakeSmaller:
In[3]:= 

Out[3]= 

In[4]:= 

Out[4]= 

Take the largest two values smaller than the specified threshold in an association:
In[5]:= 

Out[5]= 

Take the largest four numbers smaller than the specified value, or as many as are available:
In[6]:= 

Out[6]= 

Take all numbers with values under the threshold:
In[7]:= 

Out[7]= 

Take two values in a list of Quantity objects:
In[8]:= 

Out[8]= 

Get the two largest elements that are smaller than 23 in a list:
In[9]:= 

Out[9]= 

Get the positions of the two largest elements smaller than 3:
In[10]:= 

In[11]:= 

Out[11]= 

Get the elements along with their positions:
In[12]:= 

Out[12]= 

Let positions come first in the result:
In[13]:= 

Out[13]= 

Get associations containing the element and the position:
In[14]:= 

Out[14]= 

Get the two largest planets with radii smaller than Earth's:
In[15]:= 

Out[15]=
