I quickly browsed the SDK installation directory. The SDK installation doesn't seem to have a standalone kernel compiler that I can use to quickly check the syntax of my kernel. I understand I can use clCompileProgram, clLinkProgram, and clBuildProgram in host app to do that, but just thought a standalone compiler may be more convenient. Something like
compilecl kernel.cl -platform "amd" -device "cpu"
and then quickly tell me if there is any syntax error in it.
Please try AMD's CodeXL tool to compile, debug and analysis your kernel code.
