Lib Sh

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Sh was an early metaprogramming language for programmable GPUs. It offered a general-purpose programming language, following a stream-processing model. Programs written in Sh could either run on CPUs or GPUs, obviating the need to write programs in a mix of two programming languages as was the case with earlier GPU programming systems such as Cg or HLSL.[1]

As of August 2006, it is no longer maintained. RapidMind Inc. was formed to commercialize the research behind Sh. RapidMind was then bought by Intel and ceased Sh development as well.
