Yes, I know, but what does it mean ?
Does it mean that the split command cannot be used to produce
multi-dimensional arrays ?

I've used another strategy : since I'll have to use several 2 dimensions arrays
of similar size but containing different data, I thought I could create a 1st
array, initialize it, and then duplicate it and change all data at once using the
"replace" command.
But this doesn't work either : although Rev doesn't return any arror, data
aren't replaced...
