Gathers a single-precision vector using the specified 1-based indices.


func vDSP_vgathr(_ __A: UnsafePointer<Float>, _ __B: UnsafePointer<vDSP_Length>, _ __IB: vDSP_Stride, _ __C: UnsafeMutablePointer<Float>, _ __IC: vDSP_Stride, _ __N: vDSP_Length)



Single-precision real input vector


Integer vector containing indices


Stride for B


Single-precision real output vector


Stride for C


The number of elements to process


Performs the following operation:

for (n = 0; n < N; ++n){
    C[n*IC] = A[B[n*IB] - 1];

Uses elements of vector B as indices to copy selected elements of vector A to sequential locations in vector C. Note that 1, not zero, is treated as the first location in the input vector A when evaluating indices (in other words, 1 is subtracted from a 1-based index found in B to obtain the 0-based index into A). This function can only be done out of place.
