First some clarification and questions so are on the same page...

It's somewhat confusing to refer to an array as a file--generally one
thinks of a file as an externally-stored disk file and when speaking of
them in the plural as a multitude of same.

Is it so that you're really speaking of an array (matrix) in memory as
the above indicates in code? That is, is this actual code that returns
what you want or is it some pseudo-code trying to express what you would
like to get from a sequence of files?

Secondly, presuming it really is an array and you're looking for these
values by column inside the array, the above returns the first (and only
the first) of what may be multiple values that meet the criteria.
Is that what is wanted or do you need all values?
