A port of the final reference implementation of SRFI-43: Vector library, with additions and fixes.
Reference implementation by Taylor Campbell. Chicken port by Zbigniew
See the SRFI-43 document for full documentation on the reference implementation.
The reference implementation on srfi.schemers.org is buggy (as of 24 May 2005). This code is actually derived from Taylor Campbell's updated version.
Also included are the following user-visible fixes:
Additionally, list->vector and reverse-list->vector accept optional START and END arguments:
Produce a vector containing the elements in LIST, which must be a proper list, between START, whose default is 0, and END, whose default is the length of LIST. It is suggested that if the length of LIST is known in advance, the START and END arguments be passed, so that list->vector need not call length itself.
Produces the same output as list->vector, but in reverse order.
This brings them more in line with vector->list and reverse-vector->list, which also take START and END arguments.
