- * Arrays are used to store entirely opaque structures

+ * Arrays are used to store data which is referenced sequentially or
+ * as a stack.  Functions are provided to push and pop individual
+ * elements as well as to operate on the entire array.
+ *
+ * Tables are used to store data which can be referenced by key.
+ * Limited capabilities are provided for tables with multiple elements
+ * which share a key; while key lookup will return only a single
+ * element, iteration is available.  Additionally, a table can be
+ * compressed to resolve duplicates.
+ *
+ * Both arrays and tables may store string or binary data; some features,
+ * such as concatenation or merging of elements, work only for string
+ * data.
