OpenCL: Parallel programmers' new best friend

Question: OpenCL: Parallel programmers' new best friend

OpenCL: Parallel programmers' new best friend.

If you are interested at all in multi-core programming, this tool (Open Computing Language) could become the standard for years to come in "what may be the best solution so far to the general problem of parallel programming." It does both task-level and data-level parallelism (aka SIMD) and some parallel-programming languages can't do the latter.

Preferred Solution: OpenCL: Parallel programmers' new best friend

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: OpenCL: Parallel programmers' new best friend

Some of the parallel processing examples are best described as *way cool* (I don't drag out such language for the average stuff ).

Don't know what Nvidea's plan is with both CUDA and OpenCL support. As both do broadly the same thing why are they pushing their solution so hard? Anyone know any good tutorials for OpenCL (or CUDA for that matter, but there's more out there).

It'd be a shame to write two programs for two different machines.

I have Windows 7 x64 bit. I hooked us a usb to parallel port cable from the computer to the laser engraver. Windows immediately installed an IEEE-1284 Controller even though the Laser Engraver was turned off. I installed the parallel port driver and tried to hook them up using the USB002 port (free).

No communication. I have looked in properties of both and I am totally stumped. HELP PLEASE! And it is a little over $35K to replace the Laser Engraver, BTW. Help Please!

Answer:trying to use parallel printer (laser engraver) with a usb to parallel

Okay I solved it. These are the steps I took.
1. Installed the USB to Parallel cable to the computer and printer (Printer was off).
2. Installed the printer driver - made it the default printer!
3. Assigned it to an open USB port - in this case 2.
4. No communication.
5. Made another printer the default printer
6. Windows removed the printer I installed. It was no where.
7. Installed the printer driver again except I started by assigning it to the USB port number I used above and made it default as I was installing it.
8. IT WORKS!
9. It is a Belkin USB to Parallel cable.
10. I have Windows 7 Pro x64 bit!

Question: OpenCL

I have both an Intel HD 4600 GPU (Core i7 4790k CPU), and Radeon R9 285 card in my desktop. Anyways, since the HD is pretty much unused I decided to enable it in UEFI settings for the purpose of running OpenCL stuff on it.

Anyways I'm looking for software that can take advantage of OpenCL.

Answer:OpenCL

It hasn't really taken off kind of like WiDi. Good luck finding anything worthwhile that uses it.

Just bought this new i7 z510. Downloaded and tried to run this program called resolve lite for video. Install the program and open it, it says NO Open CL acceleration hardware found.  What the hell does one need to buy a new dam laptop if it doesn't even have up to date things like open cl in it.   If someone knows how to instal a program that fakes open cl or something so I can run resolve please tell me. Thanks.

I have for some time had problems when printing from my HP Pavilion 7940 to my Epson Stylus Photo 700. I was using the parallel port and sending data via a manual switch box, I have now changed to a usb hub which in turn has a usb to parallel cable attached, the print problem is still on-going, I have also tried parallel to printer direct not via a switch but still same. The result of attempting to print is, the first few lines or about 1 inch of a picture is printed followed by a paper feed and if I am lucky the rest of the print will be on the next sheet, if the job is over a number of pages I may get the next full page or only half a page followed by more half pages or just dozens of paper feeds until I abort the job. I am sure the printer is ok as I am able to use either of the above mentionsed interfaces with a RISC OS PC. I am also wondering if the parallel port could be at fault as I have never been able to use my Epson GT5000 Scanner with the PC but again ok on my other computer. The PC is running Windows Me,which has been re installed on a number of occassions, along with the printer and scanner driver, the pc cannot see the scanner and asks if it is switched on. I am lead to believe that the scanner should work with Me, as it did with 95 and 98Can any one offer any thoughts on this matter

Answer:Printing via Parallel /usb to parallel cable.

Take a look in the Control Panel/System/Device Manager and look to see if there are any conflict with the USB. If there is follow the troubleshooting steps. If not try the following:Uninstall all software related to all printers and scanners. Hard Reboot. Install the scanner software first with out it plugged in, then do the same for the printer.

When I want to use my scanner, I unplug my printer and plug in my scanner.

That is a major inconvenience. So I bought a USB/Parallel port adaptor to plug into the front USB port. It self installed. Noted as working properly, but plugging it in with either the scanner or printer does not work.

Although, the scanner does work through the printer port, when I try to run it thru the USB adaptor, one of the options states to set the BIOS to EPP mode. Is that an anomoly of the USB and is that all or nothing which might not let the printer port function if I did change it?
 

Answer:Parallel vs EPP USB/Parallel Port Adaptor

EPP= Enhanced Parallel Port. I haven't used a parallel printer in over 10 years. Try setting the bios to EPP. You can change it back if you need to. What version of Windows are you running?

I have a barcode printer (Datamax E-Class) which has only a parallel connector.  My new computer doesn't have a parallel port, only USB.  Is there such a thing as an adapter to run a parallel device from a USB port ?  Would such a device also need some kind of software converter ?  (Running XP-Pro SP2  and also Vista Home.) 

Answer:Parallel printer but no parallel port

http://www.cablestogo.co.uk/product.asp?productid=81626Connect the parallel end of the connector cable to the parallel port on your printer, scanner or other parallel peripheral device.Step 2Plug the USB end of the connector cable to an open USB port on your computer, then turn on your device. Your computer will automatically detect the device as a new hardware.Step 3Insert the installation disc for your device into the CD-ROM drive, then follow the instructions to install your device drivers. This may vary depending on the device connected. If you do not have an installation CD, check your manufacturer's website for driver downloads.Step 4Perform a test print, scan or function with your device to make sure that the connection is secure and the drivers are properly installed.

EPSON Stylus Photo700 HP Pavilion 7940I am still having great problems printing to the above printer from my PC. I have a direct parallel cable and a usb to parallel cable both give the same problems. The first few lines of a web page which may or may not contain graphics will be printed, followed by a carriage return giving a new page, then the rest of the page will start to print but a few lines down, the carriage return or new page is sent and the lst line or so will be printed but only faintly, and on the new page the rest of the printer head pass for the line will again be printed faintly followed by a few lines printed correctly, an A4 sheet may end up being printed on 5 sheets of paper. I have re-installed the drivers. I also use the printer with my RISC OS computer and this prints ok, so this would see to prove the printer ok as the same leads have been used to prove the point, can anyone help!!! Please!It does not seem to matter if I use Word, Page Plus 9 or Notepad. At present I have to export via my LAN to RISC OS to be able to print anything correctly.

Perhaps not, even if you were to do a clean install at this point - see here: SFC some corrupt files can not be fixed

Normally, folks would advise that the next step is using DISM to repair this problem but, if you check the thread I linked above, you may decide you don't want to reinvent the wheel.

Question: Missing OpenCL.dll

Hi All,
So, I upgraded to Windows 10 a day back using the media creation tool, and the install went fine. After I restarted the PC for the first time, I got an error saying that OpenCL.dll is missing. I searched online forums and it said that it might be due a problem with your graphic drivers. So, I updated the driver with Device Manager, but it said that the driver is upto date. I still get the problem after every restart.

Any help appreciated.

Thanks everyone.

Answer:Missing OpenCL.dll

Could you look and let us know what driver version you are using please? (quick way to look- right click on your desktop, click nvidia control panel, then in the bottom left corner of the dialogue box that opens hit system properties)

Hello! I work and study in CAE/mathematical modeling field. Now I'm trying to use OpenCL on my laptop. According to all the utilities I've tried I have no OpenCL support, although I know that it should have, at least early versions. E.g. FurMark didn't even recognize my dicrete card.

A programming language: https://www.khronos.org/opencl/





OpenCL defines an application programming interface (API) that allows programs running on the host to launch kernels on the compute devices and manage device memory, which is (at least conceptually) separate from host memory. Programs in the OpenCL language are intended to be compiled at run-time, so that OpenCL-using applications are portable between implementations for various host devices.[12

hi, i need a solution to this program. i sort of completed most of it, but i would like to know if there is an easier way to do it. if anyone can help, i would really appreciate it. Thanks... here it is:
Description: The program will print an unshuffled deck according to the order of spades, hearts, diamonds, and clubs with decrementing order. the program will randomly shuffle a deck and print out the new order of 52 cards.

Input: ask user to shuffle deck. if answer is no, program is terminated.
Output: start program that shows the original deck order. if input is yes, then program prints shuffled deck.

Suggestion: this program consists of 3 files: head file, definition of member functions file, and main file.

1. define the enum data type with four suits:enum suit {spades, hearts, diamonds, clubs}
2. declare a desk class w/data members:suit and total cards as integer.
3. set up member functions: initDeck, printOriginal, shuffleDeck, and printShuffled.
4. include time.h for randomize function and shuffling by int k = rand() % 52.
 

Answer:FOR ALL C++ PROGRAMMERS......

Um... are you asking us to write the program for you? To be perfectly honest, the only way to learn programming is to do it. If we do your assignments for you it would be counterproductive. The better idea would be for you to post the finished product here and we can give you tips and pointers on what you already did. The first step though is you must complete the program yourself and get it working. once you've done that we can help you improve your technique.

Good Luck!

Newbie programmer seeks recommendations for a "starter" programming language.

I've extensively used some scripting based languages in the past (i.e. WinBatch, Visual Dialog Script) and had a lot of fun with them, but there's only so far one can go with those systems. I was hoping to try my hand at some more serious programming but don't know where to start. I can remember having read (years ago) numerous accounts of programmers saying things like "Gee, I wish I wouldn't have started with language X. It would have been better to start programming with language Y", and other similar statements. I'd rather not have to say the same thing in a few years, after realizing that I'd approached the whole matter bassackwards. Mind you, I'm not looking to become a commercial programmer or anything of that nature. I just like writing relatively uncomplicated apps for myself, family and friends.

Any input would be much appreciated. Thanks
 

Answer:Any programmers out there?

*Raises hand*

Note: I am not mentioning scripting languages because they aren't really programming languages.

I would say start with c, because a lot of what is used today evolved from it. C isn't an easy language to grasp though, at least it wasn't for me.

I started with Java myself (after taking and forgetting a c class). Python I have been told is a good starting place too.

Since Java, I have included C#, VB.NET, and Objective-c.

When starting out, you don't want what is the easiest language to use, but the one that will make it easier for you to understand others. For instance, going from VB, which is easier, to something like Objective-c, would be like pulling teeth--very painful and bloody.
That is why starting with c is probably a good idea (it is a functional language). Then consider c++, or if you want something higher level, Java, and other OOP languages.

Nvidia Mulls Over Porting PhysX to OpenCL - X-bit labs

"Nvidia May Allow GPU PhysX to Work on ATI Hardware

Nvidia Corp. said that it could eventually port computing of physics effects created using PhysX middleware to OpenCL application programming interface (API) and capable hardware. This may actually enable acceleration of physics effects processing on graphics chips to work on ATI Radeon hardware.

At present PhysX middle-ware is used to make physics effects on various platforms, including video game consoles and personal computers. In virtually all the cases processing of physics effects is performed on the central processing units ? x86 chips in case of PC, Cell in case of PlayStation 3 or PowerPC in case of Xbox 360 ? however, there are handful of games that can take advantage of physics computing on Nvidia GeForce graphics processing units (GPUs) that support CUDA technology. The latter is virtually Nvidia?s proprietary API and is naturally not supported by chips developed by ATI, graphics business unit of Advanced Micro Devices. Due to such limitations not a lot of game developers are implementing GPU PhysX and enabling acceleration using DirectCompute or OpenCL is one of the best ways to popularize processing of physics effects on graphics processors.

?In the future it is a possibility that we could use OpenCL, but at the moment CUDA works great. [Our GPU] architecture allows for acceleration by other things like OpenCL. Nvidia works very closely wit... Read more

Hi, my name is Blake and I've come to MajorGeeks to look for some help.

I'd like to create a mobile app (iOS and/or Android) for a psychology study called Emotional Matter I started almost a year ago. I've attempted to do this myself, and although I aspire to be a programmer someday, I have admitted defeat.

The study goes a bit like this: at the end of each day I rate my overall happiness on a scale of 1-10. Then I input that number into an excel document I have made and it is updated onto several different graphs. So far my statistics page keeps track of weekly, monthly, and seasonal averages. I hope to keep expanding.

What I'm proposing is a small project (or so I believe) that you would lead to make Emotional Matter into an app. Basic components would be a page to type in today's number, a help & information page, and pages where participants can see their graphs and statistics (plus I'd like for them have access to all the data in Emotional Matter).

If you're interested in my offer or have any questions, just comment below or feel free to email me at <snip>

Thanks for reading and have a nice day.

I am a student in college, I am studying computer programming. Right now I am only learning programming concepts. We have not really learned any programming languages yet. After this term ends we will start learning C++, C# and a couple of other ones. I am trying to teach myself java on the side. These programming concept classes have been a huge help. I wanted to ask about some ideas and suggestions on an idea I had though. I haven't the experience to a make wise decision at this point so I'd thought I'd ask. I have always loved the idea of getting into game design. Everest University is not a game design school per se, but could I still use the general programming skills to work with a game design company?

Secondly, my over all goal that I wanted to shoot for was to eventually start a game design company, or when I have more experience get together a team and build our own Professional Grade Game Engine. That could be used to make money the same way the Unreal Engine or CryEngine does. I understand this would probably take A LOT of work, testing, time and on the list goes, especially to make something that's really good. Is this something feasible to shoot for in the long run? If so, besides just programming, what other knowledge would you have to acquire to build a game engine? Thanks again guys for your time.

AFAIK... Most, if not all applications will have some major issue one time or another. This issue is addressed by the the company of the application in question in relatively short time frame. Except when it is not, case in point...

Kaspersky Internet Security 2015 has high CPU utilization that pretty much makes the system sluggish and as such, unusable. This has been ongoing since mid-February with no fix in sight. The workaround is either to disable some of the protection, or roll back to Kaspersky Internet Security 2014. The Kaspersky forum topic on this subject had been ongoing, well since February, where tech support has promised a fix for this issue on a periodic basis. The last promised date of mid-May has passed, still no fix date, not even promising now, and evidently the forum moderator has gotten tired about people complaining. As such, he or she closed the topic to prevent further posting. Here's the link to the high CPU utilization thread...

Question to programmers/developers..

Is it really that hard to fix a high CPU utilization issue in the application? Especially for the size of Kaspersky that has the KIS 2014 that does not have this issue. The KIS 2016 is also in the wing, presumably does not have this issue, slated to be released in August this year.

From my non-programmer view, shouldn't Kaspersky be able to patch KIS 2015 issue in light of pre and post versions not having this issue?

Answer:Question for programmers/developers...

How fast an issue may be fixed depends on what is causing it.

Here's something for thought for those with capability to experiment

1. Normal x86 will buy Microsoft Software, or run Linux Freeware

2. Macintosh users will buy Mac software

Basically for desktop consumer customers very few are willing to pay for Linux consumer software.

In order for new software company to survive, it needs a reasonable financial basis to sustain itself. In crowded environments with professional level software from both commercial ware and OSS-ware, the task is very challenging. There is potentially a new opening.

Android 10.1 inch or bigger tablets.

1. Normal Linux distro cannot run on current tablets. Therefore no Linux freeware

2. Various current Linux software are NOT designed for touch-computing.

3. The various Android Tablets CANNOT be converted to run Windows XP, so you do not have issue of users buying Linux tablets and convert to XP. Because majority of low-cost tablets are ARM-based, there is no chance of running any version of x86 Windows on top of them, and there are a lot of difficulties for quick deployment of full-scale Linux distro loaded with freeware onto such low-cost tablets. (honestly I don't mind though if somebody could do that, I am equally happy. However, people who invest money/efforts need to access the situation due to commitment)

4. Almost all Pro/Anti iPad/Android tablets pundits/technogeeks/prosumers/fanboys agree that current tablets are positioned as consumption devices so no tier-1 houses are addressing t... Read more

Hi all, I have another question on software that I need help with.This is one of my college questions that I need help with.

Hi. What are the most common/important requirements (other than a computer science degree) for computer programmers and software developers?? What languages and platforms should i know before exiting college?

thanks
 

Answer:Most common requirements for computer programmers

Though I can't say this from an experienced point of view. . .

Most modern languages are good. It's useful to know multiple languages, but not 100% necessary because many programmers use only two (one for scripting and the other [compiled] language for interpreting the script, depending on the scripting language [some scripting languages can be compiled directly rather than creating a program to interpret it]). As for specifics, Java and C++ are a couple of the most commonly used languages. Of course there are others, but those are IMHO the best 2 languages to learn. Also, databases are frequently used, so if you have any extra time and the college doesn't offer database-related content, I'd check them out online or ask a friend who can help you get started.

I have been stuck with SDL as a beginner programmer trying to strengthen my C++ programming ability, and have never completed any programs worthy of even noting.

I have been on and off programming for a while and sadly, over the months, I've gained few helpful knowledge tips/skills in programming altogether.

I went for DirectX programming time ago, but that was too difficult. It was also discouraging altogether.

I'm certain that Mac's API(Cocoa?)would be just as bad if not worse in terms of difficulty than DirectX, so that's not worth it either...

So being stuck with beginner C++ skills and some amateur SDL programming ability, am I just a terrible programmer, or could it be that I need more time to brush up all over again?

These are some things I can do in SDL:

1.Blit images to the screen.

2.Handle input functionality somewhat good.

3.Go in fullscreen mode.

4.Move images around the screen.

I can also do some Windows API programming, such as handling window events, message box input methods, and drawing shapes(never drawn an actual image file though).

Am I that bad that I should just quit altogether, or am I far enough in for there to be hope on my getting further? I am asking you, not asking you to ask me.

You are the experienced ones compared to me(although many people exist that cannot program at all, I'm uncertain if an amateur skill in it is worthy of some acknowledgment or praise of succession in the skill by others who are better)... Read more

About 2 weeks ago (April 2016), the Windows Update for Version 1511 finally arrived and it is now at Build 10586.218
A few days (2 or 3) before that, IE 11 and Edge started to misbehave. It's possible that some final pre-upgrade-to-1511 upgrade did this - it is equally possible just a co-incidence.
The symptoms are that IE11 will open up but the address bar does not get populated and after a few seconds, it just disappears again. Edge does similar. When this happens, I sometimes try Firefox but that takes a long time to start - at least it starts. Chrome usually starts within a short time. There is no sure way to get IE and Edge back again. Rebooting sometimes does it. Usuallly, I have to use Turn Windows Features on and off to turn IE 11 off then on again (which given a restart is needed both times is timeconsuming).

A friend of mine sent me an Email RE a problem with a CDROM he's got in someone elses PC. here that Email

Hi Jay.

I'm working on a friends (OLD)PC and he wants me to do a fresh install of XP. Problem is that his CD-ROM will not boot on start-up.
I have changed BIOS to boot the CDROM first. No good. Changed to a new CDROM drive, wont boot from a the CDROM. I can start Win 2000 and then run XP (legit copy) setup from there but it will only allow me to do a fresh install but will not allow me to remove the previous Win 2000 partition. The only way to install XP is to install it on the same partition as 2000. Win 2000 partition is NTFS

BTW Just installed a new 40 GB HDD (only way I was able to install any OS onto this HDD was to run the 98 boot disk and install 98SE first.I tried to install XP directly from the Drompt using the command "setup" but I get" cannot run in DOS mode"

Please help I am stumped as to what to do
to fix this problem.
I have installed Windows O/S on several machines and this is the first one I have had this cdrom problem.

I have probably confused you by now, so please email me and hopefully we can figure out a solution together.
Thanks in advance for you help

Answer:A friend of a friend's having problems with his CD ROM Drive

theres an update

Reset BIOS to default which is Floppy,HDD,CDROM. If I try to change the boot order to CDROM first, all entries change to "not installed" I can set HDD to first boot but I cannot set floppy or CD to boot sequence. It is like I have no other drives installed I have to default BIOS again to re-set boot order to the above factory settings of Floppy.HDD then CDROM.
Did not try another IDE cable. Dont have an extra one and this is not my PC. I am working on it for a friend.
Really frustrating not being able to boot from CDROM. Cannot do a fresh install of XP or even boot a CD of Linux Ubuntu or Mandriva. Have only been able to install Windows 98se which only uses FAT32 and will only recognize 8GB of my HDD space If I try to install 2000 or XP it will not allow me to delete that partition and install 2000 or XP onto the 8GB partition leaving the rest of the HDD unused. If I could boot from CDROM I should be able to format and partition entire HDD to NTFS. Then I could continue the install and all would be fine.
Note: I have NEVER had this much problem before and I have installed 98se,2000, XP , Vista,and several Linux distros on quite a few systems in the past.
Any other workarounds or suggestions?
Thanks for all your help

So i had a DB-25 male to DB-25 male cable so, for fun i pluged it to a pc with win xp, and to the controller port. I downloaded the free controller software from this site: http://www.laserdiscarchive.co.uk/laserdisc_archive/sony/sony_laserdisc_archive.htm. so everything is plugged, it even displays on the laserdisc player there is and external controller plugged to it. So the problem is: it's plugged in a LPT port and the dos software requires COM... So i got 2 different adapters and turns out one was for modem and so is the other one, but i'm just assuming. so i'm wondering is there really and RS-232 adapter from DB-25 to DB9? or i can do something to change the LPT port to COM. because the laser disc does display it's connected to a controller and it does not when used with the numerous adapters.

I have a printer that can be connected via either the USB or parallel port to my PC. Currently it is connected via Parallel, but I have found a USB cable (was supplied with the NTL cable modem, but that was connected via ethernet).Is there ANY noticable difference in using USB over Parallel (or the other way round), apart form the cable being a hell of lot less bulky?

Answer:USB or Parallel?

The short answer is no.There is no change in the quality that is produced and it won't be done any quicker. The only advantage is likely to be the ease of plug and play. Some printers also don't mind being connected to two computers. Some do!

Hi,

Being service technicians that work on Barcode printers and Forms Handling Equipment we have a need to flash some of our printers out in the field. Our new laptops do not have parallel ports and we are in desparate need of them out in the field. I have tried a few different no name brand (all I could find at the local place) adapters with no luck.....sure they work when printing to a printer but for some reason they do not work when flashing. The printers we are flashing are SATO and PRINTRONIX. Does anyone have any eperience in flashing with these USB adapters? or any other suggestions would be great.

Thanks alot
 

Answer:Best USB to Parallel

The problem is likely to be that the adapted (all USB appear the same) create "software" Parallel ports, the legacy software you use needs a hardware port.

You may have to consider a PCMCIA approach, but I have never tried it.

It has to connect to a parallel port on my scanner... but my scanner only has one USB connector that connects to my laptop. I do have a multiple USB port that I can use, but how do I get over the parallel port problem for the slide scanner. My ultimate question is: Is there such a thing as an adaptor to go from a parallel to a USB?

I saw one at Wal-Mart last week. I think it was a Belkin.

Staples used to let you return these if they did not work. I bought one once for either parallel to usb or scsi to usb. Didn't work so I returned it with no problems. They were new at the time and may have improved.

If you buy one, I would ask about the stores return policy before buying.

Good evening, has anyone who has ever used a Parallel to usb adapter ever found that it speeds up the printer? in this case its a HP R45 all in one Which is very slow in printing.

Answer:parallel to usb

Are you contemplating adding the adapter to speed up printing, or have you got one already. Your post is not too clear. hwo is the printer connected right now?If you connect a HP printer to a parallel port, make sure the port is set to ECP mode in the BIOS - printing can be pretty dire otherwise. My experience with HPs is that where possible a USB connection isto be preferred - do you have one - if not why not add one by way of a plug-in board. But before you do, what version of Windows are you using, as they don't all support USB.

I have a ThinkPad and don't have a parallel or serial port. I use a USB to Serial converter to hook up my Palm. It works, but every time I use it I have to change the Com port to get it to Sync.

Frustrating, but the only thing that works.

I don't know what to tell you about the parallel, I am assuming it is workable, but may be difficult to manage.
