Allegro CL version 8.2
Unrevised from 8.1 to 8.2.
8.1 version

make-buffer-input-stream

Arguments: buffer &optional start end external-format

Returns a buffer-input-simple-stream. buffer may be a simple-vector, or it can have a fill-pointer. start defaults to 0, and end defaults to nil, in which case the current length of buffer is used as the end. The external-format argument should be the name of an external-format, or :default will cause it to be looked up in the locale.

Reading can then proceed from the stream, until the end location is reached, at which time eof processing takes place. file-position can be used to read and set the location, but must not set the location beyond the end.

See streams.htm for information on the simple-streams implementation in Allegro CL.
