Nim for HPC


  • James OSBORN

Primary authors



I will discuss the features of the programming language Nim (https://nim-lang.org) that make it especially suitable for HPC applications. In particular I will discuss installation, metaprogramming, optimization, scripting and C/C++ interoperability. I will also give an update on the status of the lattice field theory framework QEX (https://github.com/jcosborn/qex) being developed in Nim.
