which is what padwalker returns in a hash.

I wasn't sure about the pad (thats why I said "at least").

Actually pads are organized more or less like AoA with the first sub-array holding the Sigil+Name keys for each "column". (recursive functions have a row for each recursion, reference Panther book)

But I don't see why changing the first AV with the "sigiled" keys to a HV with indexes to the value AVs shouldt be a problem in C.

Implicitly. It's an interpretation of how you replied.

You may have meant it differently, but others may not, hence the correction.
