4.1.2 Types of grids

Antik defines two types of grids, arrays, i.e. ordinary Lisp arrays, and foreign arrays, which are defined in foreign memory and therefore are accessible by foreign libraries. The argument grid-type to a function or the variable grid:*default-grid-type* should be bound to one of cl:array or grid:foreign-array, to specify an array or foreign-array respectively.
