Set Intrinsics

The prototypes for Intel® Streaming SIMD Extensions (Intel® SSE) intrinsics for set operations are in the
xmmintrin.h
header file.
To use these intrinsics, include the
immintrin.h
file as follows:
#include <immintrin.h>
The results of each intrinsic operation are placed in registers. The information about what is placed in each register appears in the tables below, in the detailed explanation of each intrinsic. R0, R1, R2, and R3 represent the registers in which results are placed.
