This is great! I know that C++ uses <<< and >>> to enclose
kernel calls and thus create the link between CPU and GPU code
when NVCC rips things apart. How is this done in your bindings?
The kernel launch syntax can only be used in CUDA when compiling
for both device and host through nvcc. This isn't possible to
have such with D code since nvcc won't take it. You have to
compile the kernels separately, load them, and then use
cudaLaunch or cuKernelLaunch instead (I suggest using string
imports with PTX outputs or fatbin).
This makes CUDA programming arguably less practical than with
C++, but combined host+device code tend to complicate build
