can't intuit meaning of copyFromArray and copyToArray methods on FSArray
------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: UIMA-2379
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/UIMA-2379
             Project: UIMA
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Core Java Framework
    Affects Versions: 2.3
            Reporter: Mike Barborak
            Priority: Minor


Regarding this method on org.apache.uima.jcas.cas.FSArray:

public void copyFromArray(String[] src, int srcOffset, int destOffset, int length)

I read in the 2.3.0 documentation, "Description copied from interface: CommonArrayFS. Copy
the contents of an external string array into this array. The strings are parsed and converted
to floats."

This seems incorrect.

It also does not seem informative enough. If I have a feature that is an FSArray of feature
structures, what does it mean to copy from an array of strings?

Related is what it means to copy such an FSArray of feature structures to an array of strings.
Is there some contract implied here?
