OpenCLTM API C++ bindings (cl.hpp and cl2.hpp)
Doxgen documentation for the cl2.hpp header is available here:
include/CL/cl2.hpp: The latest, maintained, version of the C++ bindings. It should work with all versions of OpenCL (including 1.x). This is what most users will want.
input_cl.hpp(DEPRECATED): Acts as the master source for the 1.x version of the header (
include/CL/cl.hpp). The reason for doing it this way is to generate an appropriate set of functors with varying argument counts without assuming variadic template support in the header. This version of the C++ bindings is deprecated and is no longer maintained; it is strongly recommended to switch to
gen_cl_hpp.py: A generator script written in python to convert
cl.hpp, generating the functor expansions as necessary.
cl2.hppdoes not require this as it uses variadic templates expanded in the compiler.

examples: A simple example application using the very basic features of the header and generating
cl.hppdynamically through the build system.
tests: A (very small, incomplete) set of regression tests. Building the tests requires Python, Ruby, Unity and CMock. For the last two we use Unity 2.1.0 and CMock top-of-tree from Github (the version 2.0.204 on Sourceforge does not work).
CMakeLists.txt: A build system that both generates the example and drives generation of
To get external dependencies needed for testing, use
--recursive when cloning
the repository, or run
git submodule update --init.
You may need to tell CMake where to find the OpenCL headers and libraries,
using the variables
These can be set either as environment variables, or on the cmake command line
using the syntax
The following is an example set of commands to checkout and build the C++ bindings (adapt paths as required):
git clone --recursive https://github.com/KhronosGroup/OpenCL-CLHPP cd OpenCL-CLHPP mkdir build cd build cmake .. -DOPENCL_INCLUDE_DIR=/path/to/OpenCL/headers -DOPENCL_LIB_DIR=/path/to/OpenCL/library make make test
After building, the headers appear in
If Doxygen is available, you can generate HTML documentation by typing
