Ah cool. Thanks for the array info.
In that case, the example above "put min(tArray[i][v]" doesn't work because
there are no subkeys of [i]["v"], only a value.
In your example tarray["v"] has subkeys which contain values.
So in the first case, the only thing min() can see is 15 (the value of
min(tArray[i]) wouldn't work because there would only be one subkey ["v"]
for i in the first example, right? Off to experiment. Thanks!
