Hello Knud,

 124 vectorization (#10)
 

Array operations were just implemeted for both 1.x and 2.x versions of the compiler: http://www.digitalmars.com/d/1.0/arrays.html#array-operations

for ages. But the is still long way to go before we have full vectorization. -- Crowdnews.eu - a social news site based on sharing instead of voting. Follow me on CrowdNews http://crowdnews.eu/users/addGuide/42/

That's such a vague statement, it's useless. Array operations implement the most important aspect of vectorisation. The next level can be done by libraries. 30 struct constructor (#97) has definitely been done. It's a pretty unhelpful list, though. Most of the stuff on it is too vague.

I stopped bothering to vote on that list ages ago. I suspect most folks who've been around here any amount of time have as wel= l. It's a reasonable idea to have such a list, but without some serious care and feeding it will never be much use. --bb
