//by Richard Russell, March 2014//\\ \\ **LB Booster** supports the ability to perform arithmetic operations on whole arrays, that is the operation is performed individually on every element of the array without you having to code a loop. For example you can add, subtract, multiply or divide arrays as follows:\\ | //by Richard Russell, March 2014//\\ \\ **LB Booster** supports the ability to perform arithmetic operations on whole arrays, that is the operation is performed individually on every element of the array without you having to code a loop.

Note that the arrays must all be the same size. If each array has a maximum index value of 10 (the default) the first of the above examples is equivalent to (but will run much faster than) this code:\\ | Note that the arrays must all be the same size.
