The present repository contains the latest snapshot of a set of Haskell bindings to version 1.1 of the OpenCL specification.
The following sections of the OpenCL specification are not supported currently:
- Image Objects (section 5.3)
- Sampler Objects (section 5.5)
- Profiling of memory objects and kernels (section 5.12)
- Extensions of the OpenCL standard involving the API
- OpenGL and D3D related functions
In addition, the are not currently any Haskell wrappers for the following functions:
clCreateSubBuffer, clEnqueueReadBufferRect, clEnqueueWriteBufferRect, clEnqueueCopyBufferRect, clEnqueueMapBuffer, clEnqueueUnmapMemObject, clEnqueueNativeKernel
Installation is handled by cabal, but the tool c2hs is needed for compilation and should be installed prior to hopencl.
cabal install c2hs cabal install
In examples-directory two simple examples of how the hopencl package can be used are shown. They can be executed using runhaskell
cd examples/PlatformInfo/ runhaskell PlatformInfo.hs
cd examples/VectorAdd/ runhaskell VectorAdd.hs
Haddock documentation is available at http://projects.haskell.org/hopencl/
To compile the test suite, the flag
--enable-tests must be given to
cabal. The tests can then be executed using
cabal install --enable-tests cabal test
