OpenCL Python integration

Project description

Welcome to Clyther's documentation!
===================================

CLyther is a Python tool similar to Cython and PyPy. CLyther is a just-in-time specialization engine for OpenCL.
The main entry points for CLyther are its :class:`clyther.task` and :class:`clyther.kernel` decorators.
Once a function is decorated with one of these the function will be compiled to OpenCL when called.

CLyther is a Python language extension that makes writing OpenCL code as easy as Python itself.
CLyther currently only supports a subset of the Python language definition but adds many new features to OpenCL.

CLyther exposes both the OpenCL C library as well as the OpenCL language to python.

Objectives:
* Make it easy for developers to take advantage of OpenCL
* Take advantage existing Python numerical algorithms
* Accelerate my code!


Philosophy:
* Enable users to have 100% control via Python. Access one to one mapping from Python to OpenCL.
* Endorse native Python abstractions for convenience. e.g. Slice an array, pass a function as an argument.

.. warning::

This is a brand new version of CLyther. I have not released this yet.
