Abstract
Multi-dimensional arrays are among the most fundamental and most useful data structures of all. In C++, excellent template libraries exist for arrays whose dimension is fixed at runtime. Arrays whose dimension can change at runtime have been implemented in C. However, a generic object-oriented C++ implementation of runtime-flexible arrays has so far been missing. In this article, we discuss our new implementation called Marray, a package of class templates that fills this gap. Marray is based on views as an underlying concept. This concept brings some of the flexibility known from script languages such as R and MATLAB to C++. Marray is free both for commercial and non-commercial use and is publicly available from www.andres.sc/marray
