- Scheme Procedure:
**vector-index***pred? vec1 vec2 …* Find and return the index of the first elements in

`vec1``vec2`… that satisfy`pred?`. If no matching element is found by the end of the shortest vector, return`#f`

.(vector-index even? '#(3 1 4 1 5 9)) ⇒ 2 (vector-index < '#(3 1 4 1 5 9 2 5 6) '#(2 7 1 8 2)) ⇒ 1 (vector-index = '#(3 1 4 1 5 9 2 5 6) '#(2 7 1 8 2)) ⇒ #f

- Scheme Procedure:
**vector-index-right***pred? vec1 vec2 …* Like

`vector-index`

, but it searches right-to-left, rather than left-to-right. Note that the SRFI 43 specification requires that all the vectors must have the same length, but both the SRFI 43 reference implementation and Guile’s implementation allow vectors with unequal lengths, and start searching from the last index of the shortest vector.

- Scheme Procedure:
**vector-skip***pred? vec1 vec2 …* Find and return the index of the first elements in

`vec1``vec2`… that do not satisfy`pred?`. If no matching element is found by the end of the shortest vector, return`#f`

. Equivalent to`vector-index`

but with the predicate inverted.(vector-skip number? '#(1 2 a b 3 4 c d)) ⇒ 2

- Scheme Procedure:
**vector-skip-right***pred? vec1 vec2 …* Like

`vector-skip`

, but it searches for a non-matching element right-to-left, rather than left-to-right. Note that the SRFI 43 specification requires that all the vectors must have the same length, but both the SRFI 43 reference implementation and Guile’s implementation allow vectors with unequal lengths, and start searching from the last index of the shortest vector.

- Scheme Procedure:
**vector-binary-search***vec value cmp [start [end]]* Find and return an index of

`vec`between`start`and`end`whose value is`value`using a binary search. If no matching element is found, return`#f`

. The default`start`is 0 and the default`end`is the length of`vec`.`cmp`must be a procedure of two arguments such that`(cmp a b)`

returns a negative integer if*a < b*, a positive integer if*a > b*, or zero if*a = b*. The elements of`vec`must be sorted in non-decreasing order according to`cmp`.Note that SRFI 43 does not document the

`start`and`end`arguments, but both its reference implementation and Guile’s implementation support them.(define (char-cmp c1 c2) (cond ((char<? c1 c2) -1) ((char>? c1 c2) 1) (else 0))) (vector-binary-search '#(#\a #\b #\c #\d #\e #\f #\g #\h) #\g char-cmp) ⇒ 6

- Scheme Procedure:
**vector-any***pred? vec1 vec2 …* Find the first parallel set of elements from

`vec1``vec2`… for which`pred?`returns a true value. If such a parallel set of elements exists,`vector-any`

returns the value that`pred?`returned for that set of elements. The iteration is strictly left-to-right.

- Scheme Procedure:
**vector-every***pred? vec1 vec2 …* If, for every index i between 0 and the length of the shortest vector argument, the set of elements

`(vector-ref vec1 i)`

`(vector-ref vec2 i)`

… satisfies`pred?`,`vector-every`

returns the value that`pred?`returned for the last set of elements, at the last index of the shortest vector. Otherwise it returns`#f`

. The iteration is strictly left-to-right.
