Hi, I am using the code given in to find the squares of the numbers from 1 to 10. What I need to do is, send a argument to the function, and get the square of that number. The code is attached. When I try to run the file, I get the following errors : 



devuser@devuser-desktop:~/Desktop/opencl/hello$ g++ -o sqr -I$ATISTREAMSDKROOT/include -L$ATISTREAMSDKROOT/lib/x86 squares.cpp -lOpenCL

squares.cpp: In function ‘int square(int)’:

squares.cpp:75: error: invalid conversion from ‘int’ to ‘const void*’

squares.cpp:75: error:   initializing argument 6 of ‘cl_int clEnqueueWriteBuffer(_cl_command_queue*, _cl_mem*, cl_bool, size_t, size_t, const void*, cl_uint, _cl_event* const*, _cl_event**)’

squares.cpp:89: error: invalid conversion from ‘int’ to ‘void*’

What is going wrong?
