Here's the abstract:
This is a specification of a reader form (literals) for
multi-dimensional arrays. It is an extension of the Common Lisp
array reader syntax to handle non-zero lower bounds, optional
explicit bounds, and optional uniform element types (compatible
with SRFI 4). It can be used in conjunction with SRFI 25 or
SRFI 122. These extensions were implemented in Guile (except
the handling of rank-0 arrays), and later in Kawa.
