Description
The
DftiComputeForward
function accepts the descriptor handle parameter and one or more data parameters. Given a successfully configured and committed descriptor, this function computes the forward FFT, that is, the transform with the minus sign in the exponent,
δ
= -1.
The
DFTI_COMPLEX_STORAGE, DFTI_REAL_STORAGE
, and
DFTI_CONJUGATE_EVEN_STORAGE
configuration parameters define the layout of the input and output data and must be properly set in a call to the
DftiSetValue
function.
The FFT descriptor must be properly configured prior to the function call. Function calls needed to configure an FFT descriptor for a particular call to an FFT computation function are summarized in Configuring and Computing an FFT in C C++.
The number and types of the data parameters that the function requires may vary depending on the configuration of the descriptor. This variation is accommodated by
variable parameters
.
The function returns zero when it completes successfully.
See Status Checking Functions for more information on the returned status.
