Vectors can literally be entered in source code, just like strings, characters or some of the other data types. The read syntax for vectors is as follows: A sharp sign (#), followed by an opening parentheses, all elements of the vector in their respective read syntax, and finally a closing parentheses. The following are examples of the read syntax for vectors; where the first vector only contains numbers and the second three different object types: a string, a symbol and a number in hexadecimal notation.

#(1 2 3)
#("Hello" foo #xdeadbeef)

Like lists, vectors have to be quoted:

'#(a b c) ⇒ #(a b c)
