[erlang-questions] Indexed element access: array vs. erlang:element

Hi,

I need an index-based access to elements of a fixed-size array-like
structure. Number of elements is expected to be about several
thousands.

What would be more efficient: to create an array (using the "array"
module) or to build a huge tuple and use erlang:element?

Thanks.

PS I suspect the latter, but how does erlang:element scale on tuples
of such size?
