clamp

Clamp x to range given by minval, maxval.

gentype clamp ( gentype x,
  gentype minval,
  gentype maxval)
gentype clamp ( gentype x,
  sgentype minval,
  sgentype maxval)

Description

clamp returns min(max( x, minval), maxval).

Results are undefined if minval > maxval.

Notes

Built-in integer functions can be used to 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 any specific use of a function, the actual type has to be the same for all arguments and the return type unless otherwise specified.
