Is it possible to convert c++vectors in AiArrays?

I'm actually assuming that you cannot use standard c++ vectors to populate a polymesh node with data, I'm really new to the API, so probably I'm missing something.

If there's no way to do the conversion, what would be the best approach to fill the AiArray?

Nevermind, I've just found the way in the api reference on the AtArray page

https://trac.solidangle.com/arnoldpedia/chrome/site/Arnold-4.0.14.0/doc/api/group__ai__array.html#ga0a4b8872deb67d5d99ff785ce0148cce

Basically you use AiArray() to create small containers on the fly. For greater containers use AiArrayAllocate() or AiArrayConvert()
