Are you serious? You guys never know about that?
It's absolutely normal working - you don't have to fix it - trust me -
i wrote very large code on GAWK - and many-many projects - i can't
imagine how can i realize all this without local arrays. Some of my
GAWK projects is more than 100Kb of pure text. And EVERYWHERE i use
local arrays. I wasn't see any problems with this ever.

If you fix it - you will kill the GAWK. And all of my projects. And
hopes=) I'm serious. No jokes.

Try by yourself. You'll see it's working.

Just can't believe it.

Q4. Today i found some feature in GAWK which is lead me in to the trance:

Firstly i tested GAWK for it's reaction for symbols in "string" with
ASC-codes lower than \x20. I mean this characters DIRECTLY inserted
into the source by pressing LALT+code.
I found that GAWK isn't like char \x00,\x01 and sometimes \x1F.
But wondering was waiting me when i accidently insert characters with
code higher than \x7F not into the "string" but into the code. I found
that GAWK allow this characters in names. vars,arrays,functions. This
is great i think. But is it by design?
