Subject: [Caml-list] Looking for a real array
I knew this all along but looks like I neglected that an array is in fact an 
array of pointers rather than an array of contiguous storage blocks in 
memory. Is there a way to get real FORTRAN/C arrays for people who might not 
want this extra level of indirection?

val make : int -> 'a -> 'a array
 Array.make n x returns a fresh array of length n, initialized with x. All the 
elements of this new array are initially physically equal to x (in the sense 
of the == predicate). Consequently, if x is mutable, it is shared among all 
elements of the array, and modifying x through one of the array entries will 
modify all other entries at the same time. 

Regards,
