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.
