RoseACC is an OpenACC Compiler based on the source-to-source compiler ROSE. This workspace regroups the components of RoseACC: libOpenACC (implementation of OpenACC Runtime based on OpenCL), ROSE (version used for the latest work on RoseACC).

RoseACC Workspace

This workspace regroups all the pieces needed for RoseACC to compile OpenACC applications. RoseACC produces OpenCL C kernels for the OpenACC application. These kernels - and the data they use - are managed by libOpenACC an implementation of the OpenACC Runtime.


This workspace contains submodules:

  • libOpenACC: implementation of OpenACC Runtime based on OpenCL
  • ROSE Compiler: open-source source-to-source compiler for C/C++/FORTRAN/...
    • internal copy of ROSE Compiler
    • potentially out-of-sync with ROSE's master branch
    • access to this branch is reserved to collaborators
  • RoseACC: OpenACC Compiler
  • tests: libOpenACC and RoseACC tests

Presentation of RoseACC

Getting Started

Checkout the workspace

RoseACC workspace is stored on GitHub. Currently (07/2014), the workspace point to a private repository for ROSE Compiler. Soon, our changes to ROSE Compiler will be distributed through the official ROSE repository on GitHub (supposedly 09/2014). Meanwhile, access can be granted to our repository (e-mail:

git clone
cd RoseACC-workspace
git submodule init
git submodule update

The last command may fail on the rose submodule. In this case, update the submodule individually: git submodule update libOpenACC ; git submodule update RoseACC ; git submodule update tests.

Setup script

The setup script won't work if you don't have ROSE submodule.

For bash user, we provide a script ( that build, compile, and install ROSE Compiler, RoseACC, and libOpenACC. It also run make check in the tests directory.

Usage: ./ build_dir install_dir boost_home opencl_inc opencl_lib sqlite_inc sqlite_lib [parallel_make=8]

  • build_dir : Build directory (created if needed)
  • install_dir : Installation directory ('prefix' for configuration)
  • boost_home : home for Boost
  • opencl_inc : include path for OpenCL
  • opencl_lib : library path for OpenCL
  • sqlite_inc : include path for SQLite
  • sqlite_lib : library path for SQLite
  • parallel_make : (opt) number of parallel processes to use for make.

Build & Configure & Make

Coming soon: how to setup the environment manually... For now you can just figure out what happens with

NB: without all the submodules the top configure file will fail too...
