[Openmcl-devel] Short-float in 1.1_060826...

  I report you a little feedback about 1.1_060826.

Compiling the code (dated 1991) you can find at this url:


I see some difference between 1.0 and 1.1_060826.

With 1.0 this example works fine, but not with 1.1:

  (make-array 10 :element-type 'short-float :initial-element 0.0)

With 1.1 it doesn't work using nor (coerce 'short-float 0.0)
nor 0.0S0 in :initial-element.

But with 1.1 the above code is compiled without problem: ok we have
a problem with short-float. Compiling with 1.0 the above code gives
the following error:

While compiling an anonymous function :
 unsupported vector type: :SINGLE-FLOAT-VECTOR
   [Condition of type CCL::COMPILE-TIME-PROGRAM-ERROR]

Sorry... I haven't the knowledge to investigate further.

Thanks in advance,
Alberto Santini
