Let me re-phrase that, because the way I phrased it, I could guess that that detail might be implementation-dependent.
What I meant was: _distances is clearly a 1D array. Does the above C99 notation say "treat this 1D array like a 2D array of size [x][y]"? And then how it actually happens underneath is implementation dependent (e.g., whether it makes a silent/temporary array or pointers, or converts indexing)?
