_aligned_realloc equivalent in intel compiler? (help please)

Hi, im trying to port mfc code to linux and i am using the intel compiler.

I could not find a equivalent _aligned_realloc() in the intel compiler manual. Has anyone encountered this problem and how did u solve it?

Thank you very much

For more complete information about compiler optimizations, see our Optimization Notice.

Well, I've been hoping that someone else had some good ideas. Unfortunately, while we have _mm_malloc() and _mm_free(), we don't seem to have _mm_realloc(). Among the possibiliies are that you could either implement a separate aligned malloc/free/realloc using the standard malloc and free, or you could implement your own _mm_realloc in terms of _mm_malloc and _mm_free().

Maybe someone else has a better idea?


I have — Intel should implement support for _aligned_realloc() , _aligned_malloc(), and _aligned_free() if there is already support for that in Visual Studio (check stdlib.h, there are more functions with alignment).
