CRTerm – terminal emulator library

cterm_youtube

My new project, a terminal emulator library which mimics an old CRT display, has finally reached a usable state. See it on its GitHub page: https://github.com/bolner/CRTerm I’ve uploaded a demo to Youtube:

CozyCL: a comfortable OpenCL library

OpenCL_Logo

CozyCL is a very simple, minimalist OpenCL library. You can run programs on your graphics card pretty easily with it, without the need to know anything about the data types of the base libraries (at least for the host program). When I started to learn about GPU programming in the previous weeks, I found even the most handy C++ bindings pretty time-consuming for a beginner, who is mostly interested in getting positive feedback and sense of achievement after a couple of initial attempts.

Multi-threaded Buddhabrot fractal rendering in C++ for 16 bit/channel post-processing

buddhabrot_3

I’ve written the major part of this Buddhabrot rendering program in last August, and after a six months break I carried on with it again this weekend to close the project finally. But before going into details, let`s see what it does:

Exception class with printf-like parameters for C++

When raising exceptions it is good to make their error texts as detailed as possible. Usually this isn’t an easy task, cause it involves type conversions and string operations. This is why I’ve implemented this class, which can be instantiated by printf-like parameters as easily as this line: throw(new FException("Invalid tag: ‘%s’. At line: %d.", tag, line));

SDL TTF for x64 as static library

SDL TTF for x64 as static library

I compiled a static, 64 bit version of the Simple DirectMedia Layer library last Christmas, plus the sdl_ttf and the Freetype library. Now these can be downloded here in this zip file:

Threading events and Intel Building Blocks

The Intel Threading Building Blocks library (TBB) is a useful cross-platform C++ library, which contains many high and low level tools for developing multi-threaded applications. One feature I required but couldn’t find in TBB is a class similar to AutoResetEvent in the .NET framework. That class allows simple synchronization of two threads. One of them is waiting the event to be triggered, while the other triggers the event at a point. I have implemented this class in C++, using atomic operations from TBB, which guaranties that if the two threads are running on different cores, then their caches get synced

SharpMIDI

SharpMIDI is an easy to use library for .NET 3.5, written in C# and C++, which allows to use MIDI playback and device query functions on 32 and 64 bit (AMD64) Windows systems.

Fractal renderer

fractal1

This is an experimental project. This application can generate Mandelbrot, Burning Ship, Newton, and Julia (“The Wizard”) fractals. It’s algorithm is not so fast, but it’s multithreaded, so it uses all cores in the machine. Maybe the most interesting feature of the application is the ability of very high anti-aliasing (calculate one pixel from the avarage of 144 pixels).
