vectors of homogeneous elements vs strings? Dima Pasechnik 13 Feb 1999 17:02 UTC

It seems to me that the proposal as it is does not go far enough.

Would it be more natural to have a "vector of homogeneous elements
tagged with the common type" (something one would maybe call an "array")

and consider the types f32, f64, u*, s* mentioned in the proposal as
of the corresponding vectors to be an extesnion of the Scheme numerical

In fact, Scheme has one such "array" type, namely "string".

Best regards,
