why can't I do:
1)


TPointList = array of TPoint

function(...)  :  TPointList
begin
     setlength (myPoint, n)

    result :=  myPoint;
end;


2)  function  newPoints (var  aPointList)
    begin
      setlength aPointList, n)
     ......
   end;

both functions seem to be mega buggy ....

don't forget, that unless you state otherwise, your aray will be zero based
ie. the first element will be [0], the 2nd will be [1]
so when you do
SetLength(myarray, 2)
you can use elements 0, and 1, NOT 2

also your sample 2 has a typo (mising "("  )

2)  function  newPoints (var  aPointList)
    begin
      setlength(aPointList, n)
     ......
   end;

sounds like a bug where you overwrite memory or something.
