namespace  ROOT
 tbb::task_arena is an alias of tbb::interface7::task_arena, which doesn't allow to forward declare tbb::task_arena without forward declaring tbb::interface7

 Conversion functions between full- and half-precision floats.


std::uint16_t ROOT::Experimental::Internal::FloatToHalf (float value)
 Convert an IEEE single-precision float to half-precision.
constexpr std::uint16_t ROOT::Experimental::Internal::GetOverflowedValue (std::uint16_t value=0)
 Get the half-precision overflow.
constexpr std::uint16_t ROOT::Experimental::Internal::GetRoundedValue (std::uint16_t value, int guardBit, int stickyBit)
 Round the given half-precision number to the nearest representable value.
float ROOT::Experimental::Internal::HalfToFloat (std::uint16_t value)
 Convert an IEEE half-precision float to single-precision.

Enable F16C intruction set intrinsics. Defining this to 1 enables the use of F16C compiler intrinsics for converting between half-precision and single-precision values which may result in improved performance. This will not perform additional checks for support of the F16C instruction set, so an appropriate target platform is required when enabling this feature.

Unless predefined it will be enabled automatically when the __F16C__ symbol is defined, which some compilers do on supporting platforms.
