Re: Ranks

Now, suppose the rank has an extra cell on the end that contains a name for
the data in the rank, like this:

  MALE SIMPSONS -- Homer -- Bart -- Abe -- Flanders -- Skinner -- Nelson

Now it's a collection of data that has a label.  This is precisely
what a conventional computer file is, so let's call it a file.

Now we have ranks and files.   Ha ha ha!
