The accelerate-examples package

[Tags: bsd3]

This package defines a number of example programs for verification and performance testing of the Accelerate language and associated backend implementations. By default the package attempts to build with all available backends, but this might not be desirable or even possible depending on your available hardware. To disable a specific component, install with the extra cabal flag(s):

. > cabal install accelerate-examples -f-opt
