ksh does not support multi-dimensional
arrays. The array subscript (somevar[subscript])
must be a value or arithmetic expression
that falls in the range of 0 to 511 (although
some implementations may have a larger limit).
You can simulate multi-dimensional arrays in awk
or the best solution might be to use perl since
multi-dimensional arrays are fully supported.
