Actually, perhaps the topic should say simplest programming environment for CUDA (editor that is easy to compile CUDA with).
I’m wanting to mess around with CUDA a bit, and from the looks of the sample code, it seems like modifying some of that code should be easy. I’ve also looked around online and seen several tutorials that even I understand!
I know Java, C, PHP, and a bit of C++. However, i do not consider myself a great programmer by any standards. When i program, i’m always using Dev C++ or Jgrasp for Java. I use their built in compilers, and as such, i never need to worry about various (aka technical) build instructions or command line instructions.
So basically, is there a way i can work with CUDA in a simple manner? Just like Dev C++ is to C or to C_++, is there any programming environment made for CUDA (meaning an easy editor).
I’ve tried to use MSVS2005 with CUDA 2.0 and have received NUMEROUS errors. I’ve never been able to build any program. I tried to search for solutions and edit some of the settings, put perhaps this is beyond me.?.
After installing CUDA, i was ideally sexpecting to be able to simply open up one of the sample programs, “build” it and have it run. I didn’t even get close. But this could be because i have ZERO experience with Visual Studio.
So can anyone help me out here. Supposedly release 2.1 allows one to use MSVS2008. Does this help any? Are things easier?
Is there some tutorial that shows me how to simply compile and then run CUDA programs?
Thanks for all your help.
