Calculates the minimum magnitude and corresponding index in a single-precision vector.


func vDSP_minmgvi(_ __A: UnsafePointer<Float>, _ __IA: vDSP_Stride, _ __C: UnsafeMutablePointer<Float>, _ __I: UnsafeMutablePointer<vDSP_Length>, _ __N: vDSP_Length)



Single-precision real input vector.


Stride for A.


Output scalar.


Output scalar index.


The number of elements to process. If N is zero (0), this function returns -INFINITY in C, and the value in IC is undefined.


This function calculates the minimum magnitude and corresonding index of the first N elements of A and writes the result to C:

A diagram showing the operation of the vDSP_minmgvi function. There are three rows. The top row represents the input, vector A. The second row represents the minimum value operation. The bottom row represents the output, vector C. The diagram has connecting lines from the input vectors to the operation and from the operation to the output vector indicating the relationships between the input and output.

The index is the actual array index, not the pre-stride index. If vector A contains more than one instance of the minimum value, IC contains the index of the first instance.

The operation is:

for (n = 0; n < N; ++n)
    if (*C < |A[n * I]|)
        *C = |A[n * I]|;
        *IC = n * I;

The following code shows an example of using vDSP_minmgvi(_:_:_:_:_:).

let stride = vDSP_Stride(1)

let a: [Float] = [-1.5, 2.25, 3.6,
                  0.2, -0.1, -4.3]
let n = vDSP_Length(a.count)

var c: Float = .nan
var i: vDSP_Length = 0


print("min magnitude", c,
      "index", i)   // Prints "min magnitude 0.1 index 4"
