I am with you Craig. Besides, for the purists of array indexing, I think
it is unfair to dasignate a *lower* array bounds. We don't designate the
*upper* one. To be exact, we need a zero point fixed and the ability to
extend an array in both directions. This way, I can add data in both
positive and negative directions. And Ben will be providing a code
snippet here in a few minutes. Is that from your object programming
book, by the way, Ben :-)?


P.S. I think David needs not worry about scientists learning new useful
techniques :-(
