In this application, this data set is handed to me from another
programmer. I am not creating this data set 'from scratch', or of course,
I would have done it this way.
But my question is more general - I want to be able to say something
like 'create a new array to have have same structure as a given array'. I
still wonder if there was a good reason SAS did not wish to give us this
If I knew my array dimension in advance, I could always hard code it, but
that goes against dynamic, flexible programming.
