As I understand it, SIMD is just a CPU-optimized method for producing a CRC checksum. Is that right? Does it produce the same result as a non-CPU-optimized CRC calculation? -- Bruce Momjian <br...@momjian.us> http://momjian.us EnterpriseDB http://enterprisedb.com + It's impossible for everything to be true. + -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
