simd: simple interface to GHC's SIMD instructions

[ bsd3, library, math ] [ Propose Tags ]

SIMD (Single Instruction Multiple Data) CPU instructions provide a simple and fast way to parallelize numeric computations. GHC 7.8 provides primops that let us access these instructions. This package wraps thos primops in a more user friendly form.

The github repository contains an example usage of the library and runtime performance graphs. The file there is the best place to start, then check the examples folder, then this haddock documentation.
