VFP Collection Semantics

Namespace: VFP
What's up with collections in VFP?

During the storied history of Visual FoxPro, we went from having no native collection class, so we coded our own home grown collections, to the current day when we have seemingly many types and nuances of collections. Today the central difficulty is: the type of collection you get depends on the semantics of use.

--> Therefore beware that there is no single definition of "collection" in VFP, and what you get, exactly, is subtly determined by usage.
