```The format of prob11's data is already quite close to what the reader expects for a vector, so you can read it directly by including #( ...

(define tbl
#(08 02 22 97 38 15 00 40 00 75 04 05 07 78 52 12 50 77 91 08
<snip> ...
01 70 54 71 83 51 54 69 16 92 33 48 61 43 52 01 89 19 67 48))

A convenience function to read the table is then:

(define (get i j)
(vector-ref tbl (+ (* i 20) j)))

Here is my across function, I use a for/fold loop.  The vertical and diagonal cases are similar.

(define (across)
(for*/fold ([mx 0])
([i (in-range 0 20)]
[j (in-range 0 17)])
(max mx (* (get i j)
(get i (+ j 1))
(get i (+ j 2))
(get i (+ j 3))))))

Does that help?
