What exactly does making a function ''inline'' do? And when should I make a function ''inline''? I think it has something to do with speed but I''m not sure. Dan

When using "inline" with VectorC, it is the "intermediate representation" of the inline function that is copied into your new (calling) function. Then the optimizer is applied to the result. This means that inline functions are very similar to macros - except that arguments are guaranteed to be evaluated only once.

This means that separate inline calls can be vectorized in parallel.
