I apologize in advance for my newbie question.

I have in mind a project for my HP Prime which will not be too terribly difficult to do, but which will require three one-dimensional arrays. Two of the arrays will have 256 elements in a single row or column, and the third array will have 65536 elements in a single row or column. These arrays will hold integer numbers

I have, once again, been looking at the skimpy information about programming in HP PPL in the HP Prime User Guide, but I do not see anything about creating or using arrays.

Would I have to use matrices? My thinking had been for arrays because I only need storage for integers, and matrices want to hold real or complex numbers, and I didn't want to use up that much more memory when I don't need to.

Thanks very much, in advance, for any advice you may have to offer.
