There are various naming conventions and schemes to simulate

want to continue with the shell and the shell has not (yet) provided
multi-dimensional arrays then the only option for you is to simulate
them. That isn't too difficult and if you search the web there are
many different implementations with the biggest difference being
whether ordering matters or not.

Yes. However, that was not my question, as was also the case for the previous reply. I already indicated in the original posting that I'm aware of work-arounds. Here it is again:


The question, to the bash developers (<-- !) is simply if there are any plans for implementing multi-dimensional array support, with the two implied statements being that a) I'd like that and b) I have a fairly non-contrived use-case for them, which I thought might be welcome as an argument.

It's been a long time since I participated on open-source mailing-lists and I'm remembering why. Please don't take it the wrong way, but please, pretty please, unless you can answer the question, just don't bother replying.
