Common operations on vectors such as addition and multiplication are available in the BLAS part of the library (see BLAS Support). However, it is useful to have a small number of utility functions which do not require the full BLAS code. The following functions fall into this category.

- Function:
*int***gsl_vector_memcpy***(gsl_vector **`dest`, const gsl_vector *`src`) This function copies the elements of the vector

`src`into the vector`dest`. The two vectors must have the same length.

- Function:
*int***gsl_vector_swap***(gsl_vector **`v`, gsl_vector *`w`) This function exchanges the elements of the vectors

`v`and`w`by copying. The two vectors must have the same length.
