Data Fitting Function Naming Conventions

The interfaces of the Data Fitting functions are in lowercase, while the names of the types and constants are in uppercase.

The names of all routines have the following structure:



  • df is a prefix indicating that the routine belongs to the Data Fitting component of Intel MKL.

  • [datatype] field specifies the type of the input and/or output data and can be s (for the single precision real type), d (for the double precision real type), or i (for the integer type). This field is omitted in the names of the routines that are not data type dependent.

  • <base_name> field specifies the functionality the routine performs. For example, this field can be newtask1d, interpolate1d, or deletetask
