Indeed, a single template function lpNorm<p>() might be the way to go.

Just FYI, yes the compiler will ultimately emit code for only one path, but it
will still go over all paths at least in the front-end, making compilation
longer. This can be avoided by "meta-selectors" i.e. using template
specialization instead of if().

ok, I agree with that proposal. and here we can directly use template specialization of lpNorm<>, no need to use a meta selector.
