Hi guys, just out of interest, I'm implementing an algoithm in which I'm using a mask on pixels (I'm doing a canny edge filter).
The mask has a column where the contents are multiplied by 0. I could just skip the column, by deleting the code for this column, but I want it to be clear.
If I times by a constant of zero will the compiler ignore that part of the code? Or will it perform the calculation?
