It makes more sense to return a vector indeed, gonna change that.
2) It would be nice to catch up with GCC with the idioms supported for regular (non-ext) vectors (like splatting scalar operands to vectors in a arith binops), and those, AFAIK, don't include support for truncation as in the example you suggested. I guess this is supported with ext-vectors, but I don't see any reason to support it for "regular" vectors. https://reviews.llvm.org/D24472 _______________________________________________ cfe-commits mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org http://lists.llvm.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/cfe-commits
