The accelerate package

[Tags: bsd3, library]

This library defines an embedded language for regular, multi-dimensional array computations with multiple backends to facilitate high-performance implementations. Currently, there are two backends: (1) an interpreter that serves as a reference implementation of the intended semantics of the language and (2) a CUDA backend generating code for CUDA-capable NVIDIA GPUs.

To use the CUDA backend, you need to have CUDA version 3.x installed. The CUDA backend currently doesn't support Char and Bool arrays.

An experimental OpenCL backend is available at and an experimental multicore CPU backend building on the Repa array library is available at
