The real beauty of Pick BASIC (aside from all the statement amenities &
variable autotyping & such)... is Dynamic Arrays & fileIO. Dynamic arrays
are actually how the data is stored on disc, give or take some link fields.

FYI - Pick/AT uses a totally nonstandard disk format. However, at least it
obeys FDISK rules and lives in a partition. A replacement drive would have
to be identical, and your copy would have to be "bit level", nothing that
tries to understand a "filesystem".
