array.from() function

array.from() is experimental and subject to change at any time.

array.from() constructs a table from an array of records.


Experimental array.from() is deprecated in favor of array.from(). This function is available for backwards compatibility, but we recommend using the array package instead.

Each record in the array is converted into an output row or record. All records must have the same keys and data types.
