VECTOR-MAP/INDEX is underspecified: it doesn't really say where in the argument sequence the index appears. The reference implementation says it's the last position. Let me suggest it should be the first: all variable-arg Scheme library procedures I know assign special meanings to argument positions from the start, not the end.
Yes, I noticed this...and I mentioned it on the list a few emails ago. I suggested that it come first, too, and asked whether or not this change was OK with them; since you're the only person to have said _anything_ on this list since my last email one and a half months ago, I think the change _is_ OK.
-- Cheers =8-} Mike Friede, Völkerverständigung und überhaupt blabla PS: While the draft period is somewhat overextended on this, I only just now started some more extensive hacking using vectors which prompted me to have a closer look at the SRFI 43 draft.
Too bad you hadn't done this extensive vector hacking back when the concept of a draft period still occurred to some of us...well, do you have opinions on the past few issues that I've brought up, namely the things regarding VECTOR-COPY!, the insertion & deletion routines, and the issue regarding start+end versus N vector arguments?
Let me say that the stuff there is very useful, even in the face of the nebulous hope for grand unified collection ... something. Good work, Taylor!
