I was not aware of that possibility althoug I own the book I - shame on me.
Thank you (and all others) for pointing that out.

What I want is a 2d array regardless of whether the input is a simple or 
nested list. However if it is a simple list I want the result to be a column
vector rather than a row vector, which happens by default.
Like Sven I'm wondering if there is solution without using any 'if'.
However using the subclassed array class which was proposed by Stefan is pretty

Thanks to everybody, Christian
