Error description

  • The list of function definitions for compiler built-ins
    vec_cmpge and vec_cmple is missing some legal parameter types,
    resulting in compile-time errors when using these types.
    
    
       === EXAMPLE ===
    
     vector unsigned char  vuc1, vuc2;
     buc1 = vec_cmpge( vuc1, vuc2 );
    
    
    "test.c", line 21.16: 1506-754 (S) The parameter type is not
    valid for a function of this linkage type.
    
    "test.cpp", line 21.16: 1540-0218 (S) The call does not match
    any parameter list for "vec_cmpge".
    "test.cpp", line 21.16: 1540-1284 (I) Predefined
    "vec_cmpge(vector float, vector float)" is not a viable
    candidate.
