Clojure - Vectors


A Vector is a collection of values indexed by contiguous integers. A vector is created by using the vector method in Clojure.


Following is an example of creating a vector in Clojure.

(ns clojure.examples.example
   (:require [clojure.set :as set])
(defn example []
   (println (vector 1 2 3)))


The above code produces the following output.

[1 2 3]

Following are the methods available in Clojure.
