Microsoft Specific

Emits the Streaming SIMD Extensions 4 (SSE4) instruction blendvps. This function blends packed single precision floating point values.

__m128 _mm_blendv_ps( 
   __m128 a,
   __m128 b,
   __m128 mask 

[in] a

A 128-bit parameter that contains four 32-bit floating point values to be blended.

[in] b

A 128-bit parameter that contains four 32-bit floating point values to be blended.

[in] mask

A 128-bit mask that selects components for the blend operation.

r0 := (mask0 & 0x80000000) ? b0 : a0
r1 := (mask1 & 0x80000000) ? b1 : a1
r2 := (mask2 & 0x80000000) ? b2 : a2
r3 := (mask3 & 0x80000000) ? b3 : a3

Header file <smmintrin.h>

The return value r and parameters a, b, and mask each consist of 128 bits. r0-r3, a0-a3, b0-b3, and mask0-mask3 are the sequentially ordered 32-bit components of these parameters, where r0, a0, b0, and mask0 indicate the least significant 32 bits.

Before using this intrinsic, software must ensure that the processor supports the instruction.
