that's the point, i guess..
i made a lot of swap in a multidimensional array. (float[][][])

mhh.. this is and idea, though not very easy to manipulate
multdimensional pointer,..
i don't know how they are casted, could i write 
float[][][] tab;
// init...
fixed(float *** fp = tab)


anyway, thank for your answer,
