# PyOpenCL

PyOpenCL lets you access the OpenCL parallel computation API from Python. Here’s what sets PyOpenCL apart:

• Object cleanup tied to lifetime of objects. This idiom, often called RAII in C++, makes it much easier to write correct, leak- and crash-free code.
• Completeness. PyOpenCL puts the full power of OpenCL’s API at your disposal, if you wish.
• Convenience. While PyOpenCL’s primary focus is to make all of OpenCL accessible, it tries hard to make your life less complicated as it does so—without taking any shortcuts.
• Automatic Error Checking. All OpenCL errors are automatically translated into Python exceptions.
• Speed. PyOpenCL’s base layer is written in C++, so all the niceties above are virtually free.
• Helpful, complete documentation and a wiki.
• Liberal licensing (MIT).

Having trouble with PyOpenCL? First, you may want to check the PyOpenCL Wiki. If that doesn’t help, maybe the nice people on the PyOpenCL mailing list can.
