Hello Marc, thanks for answering (on both subjects). I understand now
the logic which lays behind what you were explaining in the other one.
It cleared things quite a bit.

I'm afraid I must admit I find the code above totally uncomprehesible
(I can't even see where the array here is mentioned - "result"?) and
inpractical for any kind of engineering practice I had in mind.
Does python, perchance, have some wrapper functions or something,
which would allow one to load an array in a more natural "technical"
way ? Like something mentioned above in my post (now deleted) ?
Also, is there a way to change counter for arrays to go from 0 to 1 ?
(first element being with the index 1) ?
(probably not since that seems like a language implementation thing,
but it doesn't hurt to ask)
