CUDA::Minimal works again

Hey monks!

I've posted a chronological account of my day at Here is the condensed version.

I learned parallel programming, and programming on nVidia video cards, back in 2010. By early 2011, I had written a few modules to make it easer to write CUDA, using Perl mostly for the memory shuffling. Today, I brushed off the first (ExtUtils::nvcc) and I realized that the second---CUDA::Minimal---works on all versions of Perl except v5.16.

A few months ago I concluded that CUDA::Minimal was doomed when it didn't compile on v5.16. Now that I know that it compiles on v5.18, I'm a lot happier!

    maybe you simply need to run Devel::PPPort dance and it'll work on 5.16?
      Good thought, but I had already tried that and it's still a problem. But I hadn't considered that the eventual solution may find a good home in ppport.h. Thanks!
