My Favorite Error Message Ever

While running a Poisson Equation Finite Difference approximation algorithm (whew, a mouthful there!) today on Cell, I got the greatest error message ever:

[cgb@cell pfd]$ ./withRapidMind
terminate called after throwing an instance of ‘rapidmind::Exception’
what(): The type ‘double’ is not supported by the Cell backend.
Aborted

What the hell indeed. Much thanks to the RapidMind guys for an awesome function called “what” and not supporting the double type (although I’m sure there’s a long explanation about that I haven’t found yet).
