C++ catches up to BASIC-PLUS

One nice thing about B+ was that you could use the "dim ... as"
feature to easily create fixed-length record databases that appeared
to your program as arrays.  It occurred to me just the other day that
one could write a C++ template class to create an array that was tied
to a file.  Naturally one can do lots more things with C++ templates
than this.  The "dim as" feature was downright handy at times and
still is.
