4.7.17. __fabs

This intrinsic inserts a VABS instruction or an equivalent code sequence into the instruction stream generated by the compiler. It enables you to obtain the absolute value of a double-precision floating-point value from within your C or C++ code.

Note

The __fabs intrinsic is an analogue of the standard C library function fabs. It differs from the standard library function in that a call to __fabs is guaranteed to be compiled into a single, inline, machine instruction on an ARM architecture-based processor equipped with a VFP coprocessor.

Syntax

double __fabs(double val)

Where:

val

is a double-precision floating-point value.

Return value

The __fabs intrinsic returns the absolute value of val as a double.
