### Changes

There are two routines to change between the two different
methods of representing the partitions:
- NAME:
*t_VECTOR_EXPONENT*
- SYNOPSIS:
*INT t_VECTOR_EXPONENT(OP a,b)*
- DESCRIPTION: transforms a PARTITIONobject
*a,* where kind of *a* is
VECTOR, into a PARTITIONobject *b,* where kind is EXPONENT, *a* and
*b* may be equal. *b* is freed first to an empty object.
- RETURN: is OK

and
- NAME:
*t_EXPONENT_VECTOR*
- SYNOPSIS:
*INT t_EXPONENT_VECTOR(OP a,b)*
- DESCRIPTION: transforms a PARTITIONobject
*a,* where kind of *a* is
EXPONENT, into a PARTITIONobject *b,* where kind is VECTOR, *a* and
*b* may be equal. *b* is freed first to an empty object.
- RETURN: is OK

Please note the following important rule:
**if the partition is of kind VECTOR, then its elements are in increasing
order, i.e. the ***French notation* is used!
