Because the Fortran language does not support pointers, vector
built-in functions that expect pointers to a base type take an
array element reference to indicate the address of a memory
location that is the subject of a memory access built-in
function.
</para>
<para>
Because the Fortran language does not support type casts, the
<code>vec_convert</code> and <code>vec_concat</code> built-in
functions shown in <xref linkend="VIPR.endian.convert" /> are
provided to perform bit-exact type conversions between vector
types.
