Currently, seems to be used for 2 things:

  • Data structures similar to C++'s std::vector (resizable arrays)
  • Mathematical vectors (as used in e.g. computer graphics)

Should it be split?

Seems reasonable (as mathematical vectors are not resizable - they are more tuples with operations). But do you have any suggestions on how to name the resulting tags? –  Paŭlo Ebermann Aug 22 '11 at 1:24

@Paŭlo Ebermann: maybe "c++-vector" or "stl-vector", vs. just "vector" for mathematical vectors? –  Mechanical snail Aug 22 '11 at 1:53

Then you'd need a different one for the (Java) Vector, another for (Qt) QVector, ... not sure that's an improvement. –  Mat Aug 22 '11 at 5:38
