Thanks! Back in 2007-8 when I purchased the 50G, I had lots of data in txt files that I needed to integrate to calculate the amount of material passing through pipes etc, well, and I if remember correctly, when txt data is imported into the 50g, it is transformed into a list of vectors. As I didn't know to operate with lists, I designed a simple program to convert lists to arrays so that the program I posted would work flawlessly. Later on I merged those two into one and was very happy my 50g would handle such large amounts of data and all I needed extra was an SD card.

Not even high-level languages such as the one Matlab uses could have used so few commands to do exactly the same thing. Thanks
