Hello,

I have a simple, but very tricky, problem. I would like to fix it using

an array. But matix are possibly more appropriate (even if matrix can

not have 3 dimensional values, I think).

I would like to populate a table (of 2 or 3 dimensions), from a vector.

I think the best way to explain myself is to put some examples, with an

array such as:

## thanks to Rolf P.'s function (http://www.ruby-forum.com/topic/208620)

table = make_array(3, 5)

And now, if the seeder vector is: [1, 0], the result should be:

=> [

=> [4, 3, 2, 1, 0],

=> [4, 3, 2, 1, 0],

=> [4, 3, 2, 1, 0]

=> ]

If the vector is: [-1, 0]

=> [

=> [0, 1, 2, 3, 4],

=> [0, 1, 2, 3, 4],

=> [0, 1, 2, 3, 4]

=> ]

If the vector is: [-2, 0]

=> [

=> [0, 0, 1, 1, 2],

=> [0, 0, 1, 1, 2],

=> [0, 0, 1, 1, 2]

=> ]

If the vector is: [1, 1]

=> [

=> [2, 2, 2, 1, 0],

=> [1, 1, 1, 1, 0],

=> [0, 0, 0, 0, 0]

=> ]

If the vector is: [0, 1]

=> [

=> [2, 2, 2, 2, 2],

=> [1, 1, 1, 1, 1],

=> [0, 0, 0, 0, 0]

=> ]

Have you got a idea, or a plan? :s

Any comments are welcome. Thank you.

Best regards.
