9.1 Arrayof[type]

A wrapper object representing the encapsulation of an array of a specific type. Used in parameters to and return values from API functions to enable cross-platform compatibility. The wrapper contains a single field, which is an array of the type being stored. The field name is the Type name with the first letter in lowercase instead of uppercase.


This construct was needed to support Microsoft® .NET language bindings even though it looks ugly in Java.
