User TutorialΒΆ

This tutorial provides instructions for:

  • Adding BLT to a CMake project
  • Setting up host-config files to handle multiple platform configurations
  • Building, linking, and installing libraries and executables
  • Setting up unit tests with GTest
  • Using external project dependencies
  • Creating documentation with Sphinx and Doxygen

The tutorial provides several examples that calculate the value of \pi by approximating the integral f(x) = \int_0^14/(1+x^2) using numerical integration. The code is adapted from:

The tutorial requires a C++ compiler and CMake, we recommend using CMake 3.8.0 or newer. Parts of the tutorial also require MPI, CUDA, Sphinx and Doxygen.
