IPP Samples

V503 This is a nonsensical comparison: pointer < 0. ipprsample ippr_sample.cpp 501


void lNormalizeVector_32f_P3IM(Ipp32f *vec[3],

    if(mask<0) continue;
    norm = 1.0f/sqrt(vec[0][i]*vec[0][i]+
                     vec[1][i]*vec[1][i]+

This is what should have been written here: if(mask[i]<0) continue;
