Thank you, this is what I eventually chose to do. It's also 
fairly fast, though doesn't the nature of the dynamic array slow 
it down a bit? Since I already know the size of the array (but 
just not at compile time), can't I define an array of fixed size, 
which is dependent on the input of the function?
