## mlib_VectorMaximum_S32 (3MLIB)

### Name

mlib_VectorMaximum_U8, mlib_VectorMaximum_S8, mlib_VectorMaximum_S16, mlib_VectorMaximum_S32, mlib_VectorMaximum_F32, mlib_VectorMaximum_D64 - find the maximum value in a vector

### Synopsis

```cc [ flag... ] file... –lmlib [ library... ]
#include <mlib.h>

mlib_status mlib_VectorMaximum_U8(mlib_u8 *max, const mlib_u8 *x,
mlib_s32 n);```
```mlib_status mlib_VectorMaximum_S8(mlib_s8 *max, const mlib_s8 *x,
mlib_s32 n);```
```mlib_status mlib_VectorMaximum_S16(mlib_s16 *max, const mlib_s16 *x,
mlib_s32 n);```
```mlib_status mlib_VectorMaximum_S32(mlib_s32 *max, const mlib_s32 *x,
mlib_s32 n);```
```mlib_status mlib_VectorMaximum_F32(mlib_f32 *max, const mlib_f32 *x,
mlib_s32 n);```
```mlib_status mlib_VectorMaximum_D64(mlib_d64 *max, const mlib_d64 *x,
mlib_s32 n);```

### Description

Each of these functions finds the maximum value of all elements in a vector.

The following equation is used:

```max[0] = MAX{ x[i]  i = 0, 1, ..., (n - 1) }
```

### Parameters

Each of the functions takes the following arguments:

max

Pointer to the maximum value.

x

Pointer to the first element of the source vector.

n

Number of elements in the source vector.

### Return Values

Each of the functions returns MLIB_SUCCESS if successful. Otherwise it returns MLIB_FAILURE.
