Since you're coming from the FORTRAN world (thank you for
that stroll down Memory Lane), you might be doing scientific
computations, and so might be interested in the SciPy
package (Google scipy), which gives you arrays and matrices.
Don't expect to be able to use it without learning some Python,
though.
