&keystart end → sequence
(write-sequence "bookworms" *standard-output* :end 4)
Should be prepared to signal an error of type type-error if sequence is not a proper sequence. Should signal an error of type type-error if start is not a non-negative integer. Should signal an error of type type-error if end is not a non-negative integer or nil.
*write-sequence** is identical in effect to iterating over the indicated subsequence and writing one element at a time to stream, but may be more efficient than the equivalent loop. An efficient implementation is more likely to exist for the case where the sequence is a vector with the same element type as the stream.
