The easiest way is to have an array which begins at 0, but to ignore
the zeroth element.  Ie, if you want an array from 1...8 of int, do:

int array[9];

which will give you an array from 0...8, and then you just ignore

There are other ways but this is the easiest.  Why do you want
the array to start at 1?
