The racket/flonum library provides operations like
fl+ that consume and produce only
flonums. Flonum-specific operations can provide better
performance when used consistently, and they are as safe as generic
operations like +.

188.8.131.52 Flonum Vectors
A flvector is like a vector, but it holds only
inexact real numbers. This representation can be more compact, and
unsafe operations on flvectors (see
racket/unsafe/ops) can execute more efficiently than
unsafe operations on vectors of inexact reals.
An f64vector as provided by ffi/vector stores the
same kinds of values as a flvector, but with extra
indirections that make f64vectors more convenient for working with
foreign libraries. The lack of indirections makes unsafe
flvector access more efficient.
Two flvectors are equal? if they have the same length,
and if the values in corresponding slots of the flvectors are

Returns a sequence equivalent to vec when no optional

A in-flvector application can provide better
performance for flvector iteration when it appears directly in a for clause.
