The "Using the ";0" syntax with arrays" sub-section of DIM in the reference is not real clear. given: Dim abc&(10,15);0 the manual reads: " then the compiler is instructed to align the beginning of the next (i.e. subsequent ---my word) declared array of simple variables (i.e. xyz&(10,15)---for example---my example) with the beginning of the array abc&" Maybe the last "beginning" word should be "end" in this description. Maybe this could have been written something like "arrays of simple variables defined on the same line are allocated contiguously in memory" Brian S.
