in thread Inline::CUDA : looking for feedback

There's 15 failed tests ("Failed 15/20 test programs."): I'll need to go through each to find the actual problems.

If all are simply quoting uses, then the solution is straightforward (if a little tedious to implement across the board). Let's see how that pans out before worrying about config modifications and the like.

I recall you specified a minimum Perl version of v5.6. I've checked https://perldoc.perl.org/5.6.0/functions/quotemeta and https://perldoc.perl.org/5.6.0/perlop; quotemeta, \Q and \E are all available in that version, so no issues there.

"If all else fails I will have to resort to prompting the user during installation. Any opinions on that style?"

As I said, let's wait and see if secondary options are necessary; however, my general "opinions on that style" are:

  • I don't, as a rule, like it. On a number of occasions, I've started what I expected to be a fairly long-running installation, gone off to do something else while it runs, then returned ten or so minutes later only to find that, two seconds after I walked away from the screen, it prompted: "Specify location of whatever [/usr/bin/whatever]?" or something similar.
  • There are cases where it simply can't be avoided.
  • I have (reluctantly) used it myself in production code.
  • Where it has been necessary, I have tried to indicate early on that user intervention will be required.
"Thanks for your time spent and valuable feedback. I am not in a hurry, please work on it in your own pace."

No worries. I am rather eager to see how this works.

I have, in fact, spent most of this week (at $work) modifying modules and repeatedly going through the make cycle, tweaking tests to reflect the changes. While I'm happy to do this, "All work and no play makes Ken a dull boy.", so I need a break. As I said this morning, I can probably look into this further over the weekend. [Current lockdown restrictions means that I'm not even allowed guests in my home, so I'm certainly free to do this work.]

Re^6: Inline::CUDA : looking for feedback

    I have updated the github repository with a new version which uses ShellQuote::Any to do (some of) the quoting. I have also added a test which tries to run some perl-scripts with space in their name. That's in t/002-spaces-spaces-spaces.t.

    I have also added another repository: https://github.com/hadjiprocopis/perl-nvidia2-ml which takes over nvidia::ml, fixes its compilation errors and adds 1 more binding. If you install this first, it will be easier to enquire the GPU in current module. It requires nvidia-ml binary library which must be in the toolkit you downloaded. If you can't install that then it's not a problem but 1 test will fail (t/001-enquire-nvidia-gpu.t).

    I suggest you run perl Makefile.PL and if successful, then inspect config/Inline-CUDA.conf to see if cc, cxx, nvcc, ld are all set to valid names (unquoted).

    Following that, run just a few tests: t/000-require-modules.t, t/002-spaces-spaces-spaces.t, t/008-config.t, t/011-basic.t . The last two are compiling CUDA code. If all goes well, then it's likely that all tests will succeed. 031-matrix-multiplication-pass-parameters.t does a matrix multiplication with data passed from the Perl script and results returned back. That's a good base for any CUDA code you may want to write.

    The prompting during installation is only for windows, the user must somehow indicate where a c-compiler is if not in path already.

    BTW, you will be using a newer version of nvcc than mine. So a lot can go wrong there too.

      Couldn't find Inline-CUDA.conf even with a case-insensitive search.

      I tried a make anyway:

        nvidia2-ml's Makefile.PL contains the directive to link to nvida-ml dll . Spexify there the dir this library resides prepending a -L adir use quotes if spaces in adir.

        re: the config file etc., i was referring to Inline::CUDA. let me know
