Direc­tory macros/latex/contrib/readarray

The readarray package allows one to input formatted data into elements
of a 2-D or 3-D array and to recall that data at will by individual cell
number.  The data can be but need not be numerical in nature.  It can
be, for example, formatted text.

While the package can be used for any application where indexed data is
called for, the package proves particularly useful when elements of
multiple arrays must be recallable and dynamically combined at time of
compilation, rather than in advance.

When data is read from an input file, it may also be accessed by file
record (1-D access), in addition to 2-D or 3-D array-cell access.

readar­ray – Read, store and re­call ar­ray-for­mat­ted data

The pack­age al­lows the user to in­put for­mat­ted data into el­e­ments of a 2-D or 3-D ar­ray and to re­call that data at will by in­di­vid­ual cell num­ber. The data can be but need not be nu­mer­i­cal in na­ture. It can be, for ex­am­ple, for­mat­ted text.

While the pack­age can be used for any ap­pli­ca­tion where in­dexed data is called for, the pack­age proves par­tic­u­larly use­ful when el­e­ments of mul­ti­ple ar­rays must be re­callable and dy­nam­i­cally com­bined at time of com­pi­la­tion, rather than in ad­vance.
