Batch Processing

Algorithm Input

The sorting algorithm accepts the input described below. Pass the Input ID as a parameter to the methods that provide input for your algorithm. For more details, see Algorithms.
Input ID
Input
data
Pointer to the
n
x
p
numeric table that contains the input data set. This table can be an object of any class derived from
NumericTable
except
PackedSymmetricMatrix
,
PackedTriangularMatrix
, and
CSRNumericTable
.

Algorithm Parameters

The sorting algorithm has the following parameters:
Parameter
Default Value
Description
algorithmFPType
float
The floating-point type that the algorithm uses for intermediate computations. Can be
float
or
double
.
method
defaultDense
The radix method for sorting a data set, the only method supported by the algorithm.

Algorithm Output

The sorting algorithm function calculates the result described below. Pass the Result ID as a parameter to the methods that access the results of your algorithm. For more details, see Algorithms.
Result ID
Result
sortedData
Pointer to the
n
x
p
numeric table that stores the results of sorting.
If the number of feature vectors is greater than or equal to 2
31
, the library uses the quick sort method instead of radix sort.

Product and Performance Information

Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors.
