say I want a 2d array in max e.g.X=12
what are my options?
(I'm mainly interested where indexes are numeric, so hoping for a pretty fast fixed storage lookup, doesn't even need to be a sparse array - though could be)
as far as i can tell its:
a) put a list in a coll/table, and then index list.
b) use dict with a nested dictionary?
(a) would is limited to a 2d, I could not do N dimensions e.g. X=14
(b) seems nice, but a bit of overkill, and presumably not very good for performance, as it works with symbols.
c) I've not looked into, and not sure i want to add the complexity
have i missed any other options? where are preferred ways?
(whats the coll or table?)
can I pull coll/tables into other coll/tables?
thanks for any pointers
