Vectors (experimental feature) to be removed in R10B
Mon Jan 19 16:21:52 CET 2004
Just a warning in case you happened to have used vectors
in your programs.
Vectors is an experimental feature that I implemented a few
releases ago in Erlang/OTP. They are NOT documented and they
have never been supported by OTP.
They are not as fast as I hoped they would be. In most cases,
vectors are easily beaten by other Erlang structures.
Therefore I will remove vectors from R10B.
Again, note: Vectors have NEVER been a documented or supported
feature of Erlang. It is your own problem if you have used them
in a product.
