With operator new, the restriction that all dimensions (except the first) be constant integer expressions is not general enough for most purposes. For this reason, let's design template functions to create and release multidimensional arrays of any size. This approach lets us create a library of routines that you can call when you need to generate multidimensional arrays dynamically.

The following program calls template functions dim2() and free2() to create and release ...
