Best Practices for Operations on Structures
For a program I am working on, I need to perform some operations on vectors, such as vector addition. However, I am unsure of how best to write the functions to perform the operation. My vector is defined as
If I want to add two vectors together and return a vector, is there a general best practice for one of these forms?
Assume the latter function accounts for the case that dest could be v1 and/or v2.
Vector * vector_add_1(Vector *v1, Vector *v2)
Vector *sum = malloc(sizeof(Vector));
/* Assign values to sum */
void vector_add_2(Vector *v1, Vector *v2, Vector *dest)
dest->x = ...;
/* Snip */
