That would be perfect.
Then you can automatically calculate the amount:
amax = sizeof( a ) div sizeof( a[ 1 ] );

And you are free to set the number of the first array, in this case 1.

Like J├╝rgen says it is not a big deal to change the upper border, but it would 
make life easier a bit.

It would be a userfriendly bit.

May be people from delphi switch to fpc then... (ok not only for this reason, 
but if there are another useful bits...)

Happy new year.
