New package: liboil
|Reported by:||willimm||Owned by:||Randy McMurchy|
Description: Liboil is a library of simple functions that are optimized for various CPUs. These functions are generally loops implementing simple algorithms, such as converting an array of N integers to floating-point numbers or multiplying and summing an array of N numbers. Such functions are candidates for significant optimization using various techniques, especially by using extended instructions provided by modern CPUs (Altivec, MMX, SSE, etc.).
Why: Needed for gst-plugins-base.
Proposed category: Ch8: General libs
Latest version: 0.3.15
