Wording of error "argument type to opencl as_* function: expected src and dst have the same size"

Perhaps this should go to the driver section, I am not sure.

 

The error described in title can be produced by e.g.

 

ulong foo = 42;
as_uint4(foo);

 

As the specification mandates the return type of as_* calls to have as many bits as the argument.

I've had this issue reported weeks ago and my understanding was just the opposite: I understood it failed because the arguments are the same size!

As far as I am concened, it should read:

 

"argument type to opencl as_* function: expected src and dst must have the same size"
