Hi Colin,

Fabric supports multi-dimensional arrays, and also provides support
for dictionaries. You can read more here:
http://documentation.fabric-engine.com/latest/FabricEngine-KLProgrammingGuide.html

In terms of comparison to Numpy - I'm not familiar with that product,
but some surface level similarities/differences:

- we don't provide high-level functions for scientific computing. This
is something we're looking at now.
- both products provide methods for including existing libraries
(http://documentation.fabric-engine.com/latest/FabricEngine-
ExtensionsReference.html)
- Fabric is a high-performance framework -
http://documentation.fabric-engine.com/latest/FabricEngine-Overview.html
- we haven't benchmarked against R, MatLab etc but we run at the same
speed as multi-threaded compiled code (since that's essentially what
we're doing).

Hope that helps,

Paul
