Thanks for the reply.

I am not sure whether to fix another bug, but I fixed and I attached a new
please check it.

Please note that I inserted a line for updating "overall_length" at line

I checked below case.

select ARRAY[ARRAY[1,2,3],ARRAY[4,5,6]]; (regular case)
select '[3:4][2:4]={{1,2,3},{4,5,6}}'::_int4; (needdims case)
select ARRAY['a"bc','def']; (needquote case)
