Dwell Array  

Robert P. Munafo, 2004 Feb 21.

An array of Dwell values, usually one for each pixel in an image being drawn. This is different from a pixel array because the pixel array usually stores the color of the pixel, not the dwell value. Since many dwell values sometimes appear as the same color, the dwell array contains more information.

Use of a dwell array is a speed optimization if you want to be able to change the color map or palette on a system without a hardware color map.
