Multiplies a single-precision vector by the difference of two single-precision vectors.


func vDSP_vsbm(_ __A: UnsafePointer<Float>, _ __IA: vDSP_Stride, _ __B: UnsafePointer<Float>, _ __IB: vDSP_Stride, _ __C: UnsafePointer<Float>, _ __IC: vDSP_Stride, _ __D: UnsafeMutablePointer<Float>, _ __ID: vDSP_Stride, _ __N: vDSP_Length)



Single-precision real input vector.


Stride for A.


Single-precision real input vector.


Stride for B.


Single-precision real input vector.


Stride for C.


Single-precision real output vector.


Stride for D.


The number of elements to process.


This function subtracts the the first N elements of A from B, multiplies the differences by the corresponding values in C, and writes the result to D:

A diagram showing the operation of the vDSP_vsbm function. There are five rows. The top two rows represents the first two inputs, vector A and vector B. The third row represents the intermediate result of the first two inputs. The forth row represents the third input, vector C. The bottom row represents the output, vector D. The diagram has connecting lines from the input vectors to the output vector indicating the relationships between the inputs and output.

The operation is:

 for (n = 0; n < N; ++n)
    D[n] = (A[n] - B[n]) * C[n];

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

let stride = vDSP_Stride(1)

let a: [Float] = [10, 20, 30, 40, 50]
let b: [Float] = [ 1,  2,  3,  4,  5]

let c: [Float] = [2, 0.5, 2, 0.5, 2]

let n = vDSP_Length(a.count)

var d = [Float](repeating: 0,
                count: a.count)

vDSP_vsbm(a, stride,
          b, stride,
          c, stride,
          &d, stride,

// Prints "[18.0, 9.0, 54.0, 18.0, 90.0]"
