function moveArrayItemToNewIndex(arr, old_index, new_index) {
    if (new_index >= arr.length) {
        var k = new_index - arr.length + 1;
        while (k--) {
            arr.push(undefined);

//move index 1(b) to index 2(c)
console.log(moveArrayItemToNewIndex(["a","b","c","d"], 1, 2)); // returns ["a", "c", "b", "d"]
