Collapse (?) An Array?

I think Mike's explanation over complicated things!

I now understand what Dave was saying, and the problem stems from us humans reading a "1" as an index into the array, and not a key of the array.

In other languages you could say:

put "hello" into theArray[10]

and that array would now have ten entries, nine of which haven't been filled in yet. In an LC array, there is only one entry, and its key is "10", and the value is "hello".
