ARRAY
Type:  Pseudoverb
Use:   To create one or more new adverbs as floating point
       arrays and to specify their dimensions.  May be used only
       when typing a procedure.
Grammar:  ARRAY name1 (dim11, ...), name2 (dim21, ...), ...
       where the namei are the new array names and their
       dimensions are given by the dimij.  There is no real
       limit to the number of dimensions for an array.  The
       dimij may be given as a single number, e.g. n, which
       means 1 through n, or they may be given in the form
       n TO m, (or n:m) meaning n through m.
Examples:  ARRAY JUNK1(5), JUNK2(-7 : -3, 4)
           ARRAY CRAZY(19, -1000 TO -987, 5)
       When the arrays are used by POPS, the subscripts are
       always tested to see that they are within range.  The
       data are stored in the canonical Fortran order (i.e.
       the first subscript varies fastest).  Two arrays may
       be equated if the RHS has the same or smaller total
       dimension as the LHS.  For example, JUNK2 = JUNK1 from
       above would set JUNK2(-7,1) through JUNK2(-3,1) to
       the 5 values in JUNK1 and zero the rest of JUNK2.
