This will be possible in the next release, which will allow arrays of
strings, and indexing should work the same for strings as it does not
for numeric matrices.

In 1.1.1, you can do dynamic linking of externally compiled functions
if you are using a system that has a working version of GNU dld.  In
the next release, support for dld has been dropped in favor of using
OS-specific facilities.  So far, this works on systems that have
dlopen/dlsym functions (SunOS, Linux/ELF, Irix, and probably other
SysV systems) and on HP/UX systems using shl_* functions.

Sorry, I don't know when the next release will be ready.
