F64vec1 data type missing?

Hi,

maybe I'm missing something obvious, but why is there a F32vec1 data type but no F64vec1?

TIA,
Georg.

As Meg Ryan said in "Joe Versus the Volcano":
I have no response to that.

:-)

I was hoping someone would post some clever reason here, but there's nothing obvious to me as far as why we don't have F64vec1. I guess the answer is that, as far as I can tell, you're not missing anything obvious :-)

If you have a use for it, you might want to try submitting a feature request at premier.intel.com.

I certainly have no use for it that a plain old double couldn't cover as well. However, *someone* seemed to think there is a use for F32vec1 (which is equally redundant as we have good old float).
