The ChaosHunter_Runtime.dll, which encapsulates the class "ChaosHunter_Runtime.DLL", represents the so-called COM DLL. This means that any array passed from a client application to the COM object is a safe array.  A safe array is an array that besides actual data also contains information about the number of dimensions, the bounds of each dimension, and the type of the data values.


The Predict method of the ChaosHunter_Runtime.DLL object takes input data in the form of a safe array with two dimensions.  The output array is also a 2-dimensional safe array.
