I am exploring the Visual Studio 2005 environment for CUDA.
I was running the code of MatrixMul from the SDK. I clicked
MatrixMul located at:
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\NVIDIA
Corporation\NVIDIA CUDA SDK\projects\matrixMul
and a MV Studio 2005 window opens and on the left hand side it
shows three different files under src:
1-matrixMul.cu: This contains the main() and kernal
2-matrixMul_gold.cpp: This defines a function computeGold() which
is used in matrixMul.cu
3-matrixMul_kernel.cu: This defines the complete kernel (global__
voidmatrixMul( float* C, float* A, float* B, int wA, int wB)for the multiplication
I am new to VS 2005 and have been working on Linux so far. I have
1-Why do we have three different files. Although I have understood
the purpose to some extent I am unable to understand how these
files were created.
2-I am getting the same result when I compile and run any of
3- Are these files connected to each other? How do we do this.
Basically when I go to VS 2005, I write the whole code in the same
file and is automatically saved as filename.cu (I have linked VS
2005 with CUDA SDK using CUDA_VS_Wizard aaplication). But when I
am running the project from SDK I am getting the above three
Although this seems very simple questions, but since I am new to
Visual Studio I am unable to grasp it.
I shall be thankful to you for your precious time.
