A set of functions to concatenate an array in a string and restore such a "stringed" array. See comments.

That's a bit dirty but it's the only way I found to pause a running script (see feedback Cookbook - "pause" function). I store the data I need i an array that I concatenate with this function and store it in the note of a segment. The function RebuildArray emulates someway the core function loadstring().

See also feedback Recipe buffer + loadstring() core function

Dirty? Why?
PHP does the same, as it can paste variable-contents into the browser's address bar and fetch them back later (the $_GET-array), hehe ;)
It can also do this with HTML-formular-entries (the $_POST-array)
Moreover, it can move sign-separated strings back to an array via explode()

So, it's something similar you are doing here with Lua.
Nice work!
