    OpenCL docs

      Where?

      Where can I find a proper OpenCL reference? I can't find a single reference describing objects like cl::Device and so on. The Khronos docs (http://www.khronos.org/registry/cl/sdk/1.0/docs/man/xhtml/) and the ATI_Stream_SDK_OpenCL_Programming_Guide are interesting but not what I'm looking for.

          From your cl::Device comment I assume you mean a C++ API reference? I don't know if a document describing the C++ API is ready yet, largely because the API is still somewhat in flux. I've always found that the comments in the header combined with the OpenCL spec itself is a satisfactory combination. After all, the C++ code is feature for feature a direct mapping to the C API, but with some cleaner interfacing to deal with some of the less pleasant features of a C API.


          ETA: The forum parses emoticons by default, how annoying...

              Thanks for the answer. Yeah, I am looking for a C++ API reference. You are right, cl.hpp contains all I need. Though somehow I was hoping for more methods for convenience.
