I'm working on a project and I would like to work with NEON/ARM SIMD intrinsics in stable rust project. Most of the SIMD libraries in Rust are currently nightly only or don't support NEON. Is my best shot writing a C library and calling that from Rust?
That crate only works in old nightly builds of rustc.
Yes, you would have to use something else to compile ARM NEON code. It could be C with intrinsics, it could be an assembly file compiled with
I'd like to "reuse" this thread to ask about the state of SIMD/NEON in general.
I found several github issues related to this:
I'm confused about how to approach the issue. Should I use nightly rust only? Any 3rd party crate? Should I wait for them to be merged to stable? How can I know the list of supported intrinsics ?
