"[...] IDENTIFIER is the name of the identifier up to 40 characters long
That's outdated; there is no hard-coded limit for the length of
"Large uninitialized arrays do not take much memory. Internally they are
arrays of pointers so they probably use just 4 bytes per element"
We should probably update that to "8 bytes per element", to account for
the rise of 64-bit machines.
The DICTIONARY_DECLARATION syntax implies that a DICTIONARY_INITIALIZER
can only be specified with #declare, not with #local. That is not true:
Both #declare and #local allow for a DICTIONARY_INITIALIZER.
The DICTIONARY_ITEM syntax implies that it can be a
DICTIONARY_INITIALIZER; this is also wrong. The corresponding portion of
the array syntax accounts for the nested initializers of
multi-dimensional arrays, but dictionaries always have just one dimension.
The DICTIONARY_ENTRY syntax implies that it can only be an int, float or
string. This is not the case: Anything you can shove into an array can
also be shoved into a dictionary.
The changes to array syntax and behaviour don't fit into the
"Dictionary" section; they should instead be in the "Array" section.
