a =. 2 3 $ i. 6 a 0 1 2 3 4 5The array a can be thought of as having 6 cells, where each cell is an atom. The frame would be the shape 2 3 that structures the 6 individual cells into the array a. Visually (cell is atom and frame of 2 3):

0 cell 0 1 cell 1 ... 5 cell 5The array a can also be thought of as having 2 cells, where each cell is a list. The frame would be the shape 2 that structures the cells into the array a. Visually (cell is list and frame of 2):

0 1 2 cell 0 3 4 5 cell 1Finally, the array a can be thought of as having 1 cell, where the cell is a table. The frame would be the shape empty that structures the cells into the array a. Visually (cell is table and frame is empty) :

0 1 2 cell 0 2 3 4A table with shape 2 3 can be thought of as:

- a 2 3 frame of cells that are atoms

- a 2 frame of cells that are lists of shape 3

- an empty frame of a cell that is a table of shape 2 3

- a 4 3 2 frame of cells that are atoms

- a 4 3 frame of cells that are lists of shape 2

- a 4 frame of cells that are tables of shape 3 2

- an empty frame of a cell that is a rank 3 array of shape 4 3 2

The cell shape is the array shape with the frame prefix removed. The length of the cell shape is the cell rank.

The cells of an array are the subarrays that, when assembled into the corresponding frame, create the entire array.
