    easy array define for 2-column array?

    In Lianja, an easy way to declare a 1-column array is:

    Code:
    la = ("Hank","Barry","David")
    Is there a comparable way to define a 2-column array?

    thanks,

    Hank

    Hi Hank,

    You use {..} not (..) (typo?)

    See attached screenshot:

    Alternatively if you know JSON you can create objects and arrays with members that are objects and arrays like this:

    Ah, I see. Thanks!

    And I used the plain parens, and it did work: good for you! <s> But, for 2-column, squiggly-brackets are required, per your example.

    Actually ( .. ) doesn't work the same as { .. }.

    In Lianja you can initialize all elements in an array like this.

    Code:
    dimension la(5)
    la = 0
    If you assign an bracketed expression to the array it is just initialized to that value.

    You need to use {..}.

    Hmph! That's what I get for not checking it again: you're right of course, plain parens don't work. I swear it did that once <s>.
