Rotate bits left.

gentype rotate(gentype v,
               gentype i)


For each element in v, the bits are shifted left by the number of bits given by the corresponding element in i (subject to usual shift modulo rules). Bits shifted off the left side of the element are shifted back in from the right.


General information about built-in integer functions: Built-in integer functions take scalar or vector arguments. The vector versions of the integer functions operate component-wise. The description is per component.

We use the generic type name gentype to indicate that the function can take char, char{2|3|4|8|16}, uchar, uchar{2|3|4|8|16}, short, short{2|3|4|8|16}, ushort, ushort{2|3|4|8|16}, int, int{2|3|4|8|16}, uint, uint{2|3|4|8|16}, long, long{2|3|4|8|16}, ulong, or ulong{2|3|4|8|16} as the type for the arguments. We use the generic type name ugentype to refer to unsigned versions of gentype. For example, if gentype is char4, ugentype is uchar4.

We also use the generic type name sgentype to indicate that the function can take a scalar data type i.e. char, uchar, short, ushort, int, uint, long, or ulong as the type for the arguments. For built-in integer functions that take gentype and sgentype arguments, the gentype argument must be a vector or scalar version of the sgentype argument. For example, if sgentype is uchar, gentype must be uchar or uchar{2|3|4|8|16}. For vector versions, sgentype is implicitly widened to gentype as described in section 6.3.a of the OpenCL specification.

For any specific use of a function, the actual type has to be the same for all arguments and the return type unless otherwise specified.
