I propose an alternate technique for handling array data that strictly follows the Let notation format. Let notation is defined by FileMaker's built-in behaviors — if FileMaker variables support something, so does Let notation. This means that Let notation already supports value names using FileMaker's repeating variable syntax. Most of the custom functions supporting this proposal are merely syntactic sugar for behaviors we can already implement with the existing parameter interface functions. Any solution already using Let notation does not need any extensions to be compatible with such arrays. However, this format is less well suited for manipulation with FileMaker's built-in functions for manipulating return-delimited lists.
