[Not clear on mmap.. just a possibility, kind or requirement when arrays
are this big?]
Good to know, I have another thread on array sizes (and 2 GB limit).
You mean you could read terabyte-sized, not that it's common or that you
know of for 1D arrays?
[Would that be arrays of big structs? Fewer than 2G, e.g. 32-bit index
I'm not at all worried for 2D (or more dimensions).
