Latest on Hackage:1.0.3.4

This package is not currently in any snapshots. If you're interested in using it, we recommend adding it to Stackage Nightly. Doing so will make builds more reliable, and allow stackage.org to host generated Haddocks.

#+STARTUP: showall
* OpenCL
A high-level OpenCL library for Haskell.

Based on the [[http://hackage.haskell.org/package/OpenCLRaw][OpenCLRaw]] package by J.R. Heard.

By Luis Cabellos at [[http://www.ifca.es/en/home2][IFCA]]

** Installation
*Requirements:* [[http://hackage.haskell.org/package/c2hs][c2hs]] must be installed. (Try ~cabal install c2hs~.)

With the usual commands to install as a user library:

: cabal install --user

Programs using the library must link against OpenCL; for example, by
passing ~-lOpenCL~ to GHC.

*** About versioning

OpenCL module uses Package Version Policy:

http://www.haskell.org/haskellwiki/Package_versioning_policy

But It differs in the A version number. It use OpenCL API version as A
number, so 1.0.3.0 correspond to A=1.0=OpenCL API version 1.0, B=3 and
C=0. The major version number is 1.0.3

** Optional Requisites
Some OpenCL libraries require additional NUMA libraries. For instance,
on Ubuntu 11.04:

: sudo apt-get install libnuma1 libnuma-dev

** Example
There is an simple working example in the examples folder. You can create an
executable using:

: ghc --make examples/example01.hs

** Using ghci

It's possible to use GHCi with OpenCL, e.g.:

: ghci examples/example01.hs
