in reply to grand central and opencl support in perl?

CUDA is also supported on MacOS as well as Windows and Linux. It's free-as-in-beer and, IMAO, much easier to use than opencl. The downside, of course, is that it runs only on nVidia hardware.

I'm teaching myself CUDA programming but it's early days yet. When I've reached the stage of being able to do something useful to people other than myself I'll share it. There's a good chance that a Perl interface to the "something useful" will be one of the ways in which it will be shared. At the moment, I envisage something rather closer to the use of GMP in Math::BigInt than, say, the complexity of Perl/Tk. Perhaps a group could be started to discuss what a Perl interface should look like and to build a preliminary specification.
