Summary Statistics Naming Conventions

The names of Summary Statistics routines, types, and constants are case-sensitive and can contain lowercase and uppercase characters (
vslsSSEditQuantiles
).
The names of routines have the following structure:
vsl
[
datatype
]
SS
<
base name
>
 
 
 
where
  • vsl
    is a prefix indicating that the routine belongs to
    Intel® MKL
    Vector Statistics.
  • [
    datatype
    ]
    specifies the type of the input and/or output data and can be
    s
    (single precision real type),
    d
    (double precision real type), or
    i
    (integer type).
  • SS
    /
    ss
    indicates that the routine is intended for calculations of the Summary Statistics estimates.
  • <base name>
    specifies a particular functionality that the routine is designed for, for example,
    NewTask
    ,
    Compute
    ,
    DeleteTask
    .
The Summary Statistics routine
vslDeleteTask
for deletion of the task is independent of the data type and its name omits the
[
datatype
]
field.

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