SIMD Support for MLton

by TuckerD for

The project goal to investigate and design a core set of SIMD primitives for the MLton compiler. The project would consist of three parts: first would be a document outlining a core set of SIMD primitives for MLton using the implementation of SIMD operations in other compilers (e.g gcc and clang) as a reference. Second would be to implement these primitives using x86-64(AMD 64) instructions, specifically sse instructions. Last would be to develop an sml library to make these primitives available to the programmer.
