Chapter 7: Sequences and Iteration

  • Edmund Weitz


Lists (see  Chapter 2) and vectors (see  Chapter 5) have in common that you can traverse them sequentially. That’s why they are subsumed under the type SEQUENCE in Common Lisp. There are a lot of functions in the standard that work on sequences, which is to say that they accept lists as well as vectors as arguments. (And also strings, see  Chapter 3, because those are vectors, too.) We’ll discuss most of them in this chapter. (And see also Recipe 3-7.)
