hello Hadley

arot() in the magic package does this (which is an operation frequently encountered in magic hypercubes)

That is a very good idea. I have fought shy of this because the array functionality of the magic package didn't seem to be enough to justify a package of its own, but maybe that isn't true any more. And I must say that the majority of user comments on the magic package are in relation to functions such as arot() and adiag() and apad() and aplus() etc etc that are not specific to magic hypercubes.

Does the List have any comments?
