vector | System Class |

**Class Precedence List****Description**Any one-dimensional

*array*is a*vector*.The

*type***vector**is a*subtype*of*type***array**; for all*types*`x`

, (vector x) is the same as (array x (*)).The

*type*(vector t), the*type***string**, and the*type***bit-vector**are*disjoint**subtypes*of*type***vector**.**Compound Type Specifier Kind**Specializing.

**Compound Type Specifier Syntax**(vector [{element-type | *****} [{size |*****}]])**Compound Type Specifier Arguments**`size`— a non-negative*fixnum*.`element-type`— a*type specifier*.**Compound Type Specifier Description**This denotes the set of specialized

*vectors*whose*element type*and`dimension`match the specified values. Specifically:If

`element-type`is the*symbol******,*vectors*are not excluded on the basis of their*element type*. Otherwise, only those`vectors`are included whose*actual array element type*is the result of*upgrading*`element-type`; see Section 15.1.2.1 (Array Upgrading).If a

`size`is specified, the set includes only those`vectors`whose only*dimension*is`size`. If the*symbol******is specified instead of a`size`, the set is not restricted on the basis of*dimension*.**See Also**Section 15.1.2.2 (Required Kinds of Specialized Arrays), Section 2.4.8.3 (Sharpsign Left-Parenthesis), Section 22.1.3.7 (Printing Other Vectors), Section 2.4.8.12 (Sharpsign A)

**Notes**The

*type*`(vector`

is equivalent to the`e``s`)*type*`(array`

.`e`(`s`))The type

`(vector bit)`

has the name**bit-vector**.The union of all

*types*`(vector`

, where*C*)*C*is any*subtype*of**character**, has the name**string**.(vector *) refers to all

*vectors*regardless of element type, (vector`type-specifier`) refers only to those*vectors*that can result from giving`type-specifier`as the :element-type argument to**make-array**.
