sending arrays to objects

Hi,

I do this a lot. The way I worked around the problem was to pass a  
string containing the address of a cp (usually in the stack or card)  
which contains the array.

Works quite well and is faster then sending the whole array. On the  
down side it's a bit clumbersome to use.

All the Best
Dave
