Re: [eigen] State of eigen support for small integers(16 bit, signed/unsigned)

[ Thread Index | Date Index | More Archives ]

I did intend to add support for small integers, but as usual I got distracted by other things. You're right, I have no patches :)

I'm actually interested in 8-bit integers, but if you can get 16-bit integers working I imagine 8-bit will be trivial to add.

What is the state of eigen's support for small integers(16 bit,
signed/unsigned). I had a look at the  branch over at bitbucket, and
there doesn't seem to be any small int specific patches in it.

Any body care to comment on the state of this branch?

If I need to add support for small ints to eigen, what do I need to
do? I need all bitwise ops, and yes, 16 bit*16 bit =  32 bit unsigned
integer multiplication (vectorized of course). Suggestions?

BTW, are such features even welcome in eigen?
