To install via CocoaPods, simply add the following line to your Podfile:

pod 'Half'

To install via Carthage, simply add the following line to your Cartfile:

Usage

First import Half at the top of your Swift file:

import Half

After importing, use the imported Half type excatly like you'd use Swift's builtin Float, Double, or Float80 types.

let value: Half = 7.891
let squareRoot = sqrt(value)

...

TODO

  • Add support for SIMD functions & types with half-precision
