Yesterday I did SpikeDislike using the Tilemap functionality.
Today I thought "Hey, hang on.. Why don't I ACTUALLY do that?"
I set about making a couple of new behind the scenes commands, GetArray and SetArray.
Once the script comes across a Dim, it scans the rest of the code for that variable name, converting it from, say a(5)="Hello" to SetArray("Hello","a",5);
If you'd like, you can use that function in that way, but it's nasty, so I wouldn't bother!!

Suffice to say, a(5)="Hello" now works a treat, as does Print a(5).
Oddities might ensue if you try to do complex things with arrays, but .. they should at least function for the basic stuff.

You can dim an array with up to 4 dimensions. I can't think of a need for any more than that, especially not in a fairly simplistic scripting language like this. But if YOU can think of any reasons to have more than 4 dimensions, please do let me know.
(Plus it's still kinda slow looping through all of those dimensions, so.. probably best not to!)

Rightyoo.. Give it a go, and let me know how you get on.
I now need to go and write up today's additions for the Command List page thing.
