CUDA + THRUST + Eclipse

Quickstart

Assumptions: A working CUDA environment (I'm using OS X for this example).
  • nvcc --version --> should display CUDA Version, built date, and version of tools installed.
  • ./deviceQuery from /Developer/GPU Computing/C/bin/darwin/release (for OS X) should produce output for your device
1. Download the current library from the Thrust Project (currently 1.3.0) - http://code.google.com/p/thrust/downloads/list

2. Select a location and unzip the thrust library. You can unzip the library into the default cuda include location (/usr/local/cuda/include). I prefer to unzip the library in my home directory, (specifically the Downloads directory) but it's up to the user!
  • unzip thrust-v1.3.0.zip
This will create a directory called thrust

3. Add the libraries within your project in Eclipse
  • Project Name --> Properties
  • C/C++ Build --> Settings
  • CUDA NVCC Compiler --> Includes
  • Add (On the same line as Include Paths - green + button)
I originally added /Users/marklagatuz/Downloads/thrust, but was receiving the following
errors: error: thrust/host_vector.h: No such file or directory

The code compiled after removing /thrust from the -I on the command line (absolute path up to the thrust library).
