You can do this manually in the Properties panel of a "scalar", the
graphical display of a data structure. The array data is just a list
of ; terminated lines. Add or Remove the lines you don't want. But I
don't think its currently possible to do this programmatically. Unless
you want to edit the textfile and [read( it in. But that process has
bugs in it.
