Haskell OpenCL Wrapper API
HOpenCL is a Haskell wrapper for Open Compute Lanugage (OpenCL) developed by Khronos (www.khronos.org/opencl).
Currently OpenCL 1.1 is supported but you can expect 1.2 support to be added in the near future.
The wrapper is divided into three sub-components:
- OpenCL Language.OpenCL.Host.Core, which is a direct mapping of the OpenCL API into Haskell.
- OpenCL Language.OpenCL.Host, which is a high-level API built on top of the core components.
- OpenCL Language.OpenCL.Host.GLInterop, which adds OpenCL and OpenGL interopobility to the core components.
To build the package you require GHC 7.4 or later.
To compile the package an OpenCL SDK must be installed. There are a number of different choices here:
- Apple Mountain Lion, install XCode 4.4.
- Windows and Linux plaforms you can install AMD's APP SDK, Intel's OpenCL SDK, or NVIDIA's Cuda SDK.
OpenCL interoperability with OpenGL requires the Haskell library OpenGL.
Additionally, the OpenCL interoperability with OpenGL examples require the Haskell package GLUT.
To build, try:
in the root HOpenCL directory, which should track down any dependencies, configure, and build. It should install into local directories (%APPDATA%\Roaming\cabal, on Windows) so you probably don't need to be admin.
The examples have been split into their own CABAL package. To build them, try:
cd examples cabal install
This will install the examples into some local directory.. (%APPDATA%\Roaming\cabal\bin, on Windows). If you'd prefer not to have two copies of the binaries running around, you could try:
cd examples cabal configure cabal build
The examples expect to find various _kernels.cl files in the current directory, so you probably to run them from the examples directory.
