A core set of procedures for creating and manipulating heterogeneous multidimensional arrays is proposed. The design is consistent with the rest of Scheme and independent of other container data types. It provides easy sharing of parts of an array as other arrays without copying, encouraging a declarative style of programming.
The specification is based on an original contribution by Alan Bawden in 1993.
