vector-push new-element vector => new-index-p

vector-push-extend new-element vector &optional extension => new-index

Arguments and Values:

new-element---an object.

vector---a vector with a fill pointer.

extension---a positive integer. The default is implementation-dependent.

new-index-p---a valid array index for vector, or nil.

new-index---a valid array index for vector.


vector-push and vector-push-extend store new-element in vector. vector-push attempts to store new-element in the element of vector designated by the fill pointer, and to increase the fill pointer by one. If the (>= (fill-pointer vector) (array-dimension vector 0)), neither vector nor its fill pointer are affected. Otherwise, the store and increment take place and vector-push returns the former value of the fill pointer which is one less than the one it leaves in vector.

vector-push-extend is just like vector-push except that if the fill pointer gets too large, vector is extended using adjust-array so that it can contain more elements. Extension is the minimum number of elements to be added to vector if it must be extended.

vector-push and vector-push-extend return the index of new-element in vector. If (>= (fill-pointer vector) (array-dimension vector 0)), vector-push returns nil.


 (vector-push (setq fable (list 'fable))
              (setq fa (make-array 8 
                                   :fill-pointer 2
                                   :initial-element 'first-one))) =>  2 
 (fill-pointer fa) =>  3 
 (eq (aref fa 2) fable) =>  true
 (vector-push-extend #\X
                    (setq aa 
                          (make-array 5
                                      :element-type 'character
                                      :adjustable t
                                      :fill-pointer 3))) =>  3 
 (fill-pointer aa) =>  4 
 (vector-push-extend #\Y aa 4) =>  4 
 (array-total-size aa) =>  at least 5 
 (vector-push-extend #\Z aa 4) =>  5 
 (array-total-size aa) =>  9 ;(or more)

Affected By:

The value of the fill pointer.

How vector was created.

Exceptional Situations:

An error of type error is signaled by vector-push-extend if it tries to extend vector and vector is not actually adjustable.

An error of type error is signaled if vector does not have a fill pointer.
