In general, I find myself very easily getting mixed up by the syntax of the static vs. dynamic arrays. For instance, compare
int[] x = new int[3];
int[3] y = new int[3];
auto z = new int[3];
x and y are obviously dynamic and static arrays, respectively. However, my initial guess on z is that is like y, a static array on the heap. But that is wrong. It's actually like x. Easy to get confused.

In general, "new" means heap allocation.

I wonder about the initialization of y. Maybe it creates a temporary dynamic array on the heap and then copies it to the static array on the stack?
