Next: PowerPC AltiVec Built-in Functions Available on ISA 2.06, Up: PowerPC AltiVec/VSX Built-in Functions [Contents][Index]

The following interfaces are supported for the generic and specific AltiVec operations and the AltiVec predicates. In cases where there is a direct mapping between generic and specific operations, only the generic names are shown here, although the specific operations can also be used.

Arguments that are documented as `const int`

require literal
integral values within the range required for that operation.

Only functions excluded from the PVIPR are listed here.
