stream-read-sequence

Arguments: fundamental-input-stream sequence

The nongeneric functions read-sequence and write-sequence are implemented by calling this generic function and stream-write-sequence. Methods are defined for these functions that handle all legal calls, but not all legal calls will have highly efficient execution. The existing methods will handle non-simple vector sequence arguments efficiently, and will also handle start and end arguments efficiently. The Allegro CL implementation will also accept and efficiently transfer data to and from higher-dimension arrays in the usual row-major order, although this is an extension to the language and not defined by the X3J13 specification. (The portable way to do this is to displace a vector to the higher-rank array.)

The implementation contains optimized methods for input and output (but not bidirectional) file-streams of all element types.

See also streams.htm for general information on streams in Allegro CL.
