  1. I believe this is an R-Help, not an R-devel topic. Post there.
  2. It is not clear to me from your post how the arrays are stored -- as .Rdata files or in some original tabular or database format. I believe the answer would depend on clarifying that point -- or on others understanding what I do not.
