3. Does SteelArrow support associative arrays?
4. What data types does SteelArrow support?
SteelArrow supports basic data types such as INTEGER,FLOAT,BOOLEAN and STRING

It also supports LIST and TABLE type data types.  LIST objects are one dimensional arrays that can contain scalars (INTEGER,FLOAT,BOOLEAN,STRING) or other LIST object and even TABLE objects.

TABLEs are 2 dimensional, but since they can also contain the other data types their dimensions can be defined to be any value.

To create a scalar data value use the SASET tag as follows;

<!--- Create an integer with a value of 10 --->

<!--- Create a float with a value of -100.56 --->
<SASET NAME=float VALUE=-100.56>

<!--- Create a string with a value of "Hello" --->
<SASET NAME=string VALUE="Hello">

<!--- Create a boolean with a value of TRUE --->

<!--- Create a list with 3 elements --->
<SASET NAME=list VALUE=MakeList( ":", "123:456:789")>

<!--- Create a table with 3 columns --->
<SASET NAME=table VALUE=MakeTable( COL1,COL2,COL3 )>
