Detailed Description

Accessing ArrayFire's context, queue, and share data with other OpenCL code.

If your software is using ArrayFire's OpenCL backend, you can also write custom kernels and do custom memory operations using native OpenCL commands. The functions contained in the afcl namespace provide methods to get the context, queue, and device(s) that ArrayFire is using as well as convert cl_mem handles to af::array objects.

Please note: the af::array constructors are not thread safe. You may create and upload data to cl_mem objects from separate threads, but the thread which instantiated ArrayFire must do the cl_mem to af::array conversion.

Function Documentation

static void afcl::addDevice ( cl_device_id  dev,
cl_context  ctx,
cl_command_queue  que 
)
inlinestatic

Push user provided device control constructs into the ArrayFire device manager pool.

This function should be used only when the user would like ArrayFire to use an user generated OpenCL context and related objects for ArrayFire operations.
