AMD OpenCL Emulator-Debugger
« on: March 01, 2011, 05:12:47 PM »
The OpenCL Emulator-Debugger (ocl-emu) is an open source project originating at AMD that allows you to compile and debug OpenCL kernels as C++ procedures. The goal of the project is to provide OpenCL developers with the full support of Microsoft® Visual Studio® C++ development and debugging environments.


    * Compile and debug code within Visual Studio
    * Concentrate on your code rather than the intricacies of the OpenCL runtime, for example:
          o For beginners – get a one-line call “Hello World” kernel
          o For algorithm developers – you can focus on the massive parallel algorithm(s) rather than the OpenCL runtime
    * Enable an easy switch from emulator, CPU or GPU devices for a correctness verification and performance tuning
    * Avoid most OpenCL language compilation errors using the Visual Studio compiler as a syntactical checker

Have you tried it yet?

Looks perfect as debugging OpenCL has always been a pain in the ass with AMD...
