2.4.18 Type Descriptors

A type descriptor is a record which holds information about a type. Slot 1 in the record must be a symbol naming the type, and type-of relies on this to return the type of record objects. No other type descriptor slot is used by Emacs; they are free for use by Lisp extensions.

An example of a type descriptor is any instance of cl-structure-class.
