Well, thanks, but I was trying to move away from R and its pecularities,
powerful as they might be.
Solution to my little problem, of course.

Well, w/r to the theory of information, array is a complex data type, even
if plain. That's how it's regarded in other programming languages - special
syntax, complex indexing modes etc. BTW, even your explication on array
