Function Naming

Naming conventions for the Intel IPP functions are similar for all covered domains.
Function names in Intel IPP have the following general format:
ipp<
data-domain
><
name
>_<
datatype
>[_<
descriptor
>]
[<_
extension
>]
(<
parameters
>)
The elements of this format are explained in the sections that follow.
In this document, each function is introduced by its short name (without the
ipps
prefix and modifiers) and a brief description of its purpose.
The
ipps
prefix in function names is always used in the code examples. In the text, this prefix is usually omitted when referring to the function group.

Product and Performance Information

1

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. Please refer to the applicable product User and Reference Guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice.
