Cf4ocl Brings Object-Oriented API to OpenCL C API

October 22nd, 2014

The Cf4ocl project is a GPLv3/LGPLv3 initiative to provide an object-oriented interface to the OpenCL C API with integrated profiling, promoting the rapid development of OpenCL host programs and avoiding boilerplate code. Its main goal is to allow developers to focus on OpenCL device code. After two alpha releases, the first beta is out, and can be tested on Linux, Windows and OS X. The framework is independent of the OpenCL platform version and vendor, and includes utilities to simplify the analysis of the OpenCL environment and of kernel requirements. While the project is making progress, it doesn’t yet offer OpenGL/DirectX interoperability, support for sub-devices, and doesn’t support pipes and SVM.
