    SIMD instructions

    Hi!

    What are SIMD instructions? Where can I find information about using it with Symbian C++? How can I use it to accelerate my computations?
    I would be very thankful for every hint.

    Thanks, Sara

    Re: SIMD instructions

    Thanks. Where can I find the Symbian specific SIMD instructions? I guess, I cannot just write ADD like in MMX... Is there an API to include or something?

    Symbian is an operating system, while SIMD instruction sets (like MMX, SSE, etc. in the x86 world) are feature of the CPU. So you should check documentation on http://www.arm.com
