Function

vDSP_maxv(_:_:_:_:)

Calculates the maximum value in a single-precision vector.

Declaration

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

Parameters

__A

Single-precision real input vector.

__I

Stride for A.

__C

Output scalar.

__N

The number of elements to process. If N is zero (0), this function returns -INFINITY.

Discussion

This function calculates the maximum value of the first N elements of A and writes the result to C:

A diagram showing the operation of the vDSP_maxv function. There are three rows. The top row represents the input, vector A. The second row represents the maximum 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 operation is:

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

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

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

vDSP_maxv(a,
          stride,
          &c,
          n)

print("max", c) // Prints "max 3.6"
