#pragma OPENCL EXTENSION extension_name : behavior
#pragma OPENCL EXTENSION all : behavior
The name of the extension. The
will have names of the form
cl_khr_<name> for an extension approved by the OpenCL working group and will have names of the form
cl_<vendor_name>_<name> for vendor extensions. The token
means that the behavior applies to all extensions supported by the compiler. The table below shows the legal values for
Extension name Description cl_khr_int64_base_atomics(3clc) 64-bit integer base atomic operations cl_khr_int64_extended_atomics(3clc) 64-bit integer extended atomic operations cl_khr_3d_image_writes(3clc) Writes to 3D image objects cl_khr_fp16(3clc) Half-precision floating-point cl_apple_gl_sharing MacOS X OpenGL sharing cl_khr_gl_sharing(3clc) OpenGL sharing cl_khr_gl_event(3clc) CL event objects from GL sync objects cl_khr_d3d10_sharing(3clc) Sharing memory objects wth Direct3D 10 cl_khr_d3d11_sharing(3clc) Sharing memory objects wth Direct3D 11 cl_khr_dx9_media_sharing(3clc) Sharing memory objects wth Direct3D 9 cl_khr_icd(3clc) Access Khronos OpenCL installable client driver loader (ICD Loader.
One of the following values:
behavior Description enable
Behave as specified by the extension extension_name. Report an error on the #pragma OPENCL EXTENSION if the extension_name is not supported, or if all is specified.
disable Behave (including issuing errors and warnings) as if the extension extension_name is not part of the language definition.
If all is specified, then behavior must revert back to that of the non-extended core version of the language being compiled to.
Warn on the #pragma OPENCL EXTENSION if the extension extension_name is not supported.
The #pragma OPENCL EXTENSION directive is a simple, low-level mechanism to set the behavior for each extension. It does not define policies such as which combinations are appropriate; those must be defined elsewhere. The order of directives matter in setting the behavior for each extension. Directives that occur later override those seen earlier. The all variant sets the behavior for all extensions, overriding all previously issued extension directives, but only if the behavior is set to disable.
The initial state of the compiler is as if the directive #pragma OPENCL EXTENSION all : disable was issued, telling the compiler that all error and warning reporting must be done according to this specification, ignoring any extensions.
Every extension which affects the OpenCL language semantics, syntax or adds built-in functions to the language must create a preprocessor #define that matches the extension name string. This #define would be available in the language if and only if the extension is supported on a given implementation.
This document describes the list of optional features supported by OpenCL 1.2. Optional extensions may be supported by some OpenCL devices. Optional extensions are not required to be supported by a conformant OpenCL implementation, but are expected to be widely available; they define functionality that is likely to move into the required feature set in a future revision of the OpenCL specification
OpenCL extensions approved by the OpenCL working group can be promoted to required core features in later revisions of OpenCL. When this occurs, the extension specifications are merged into the core specification. Functions and enumerants that are part of such promoted extensions will have the KHR affix removed. OpenCL implementations of such later revisions must also export the name strings of promoted extensions in the CL_PLATFORM_EXTENSIONS or CL_DEVICE_EXTENSIONS string, and support the KHR-affixed versions of functions and enumerants as a transition aid.
An extension which adds the extension string "cl_khr_3d_image_writes" should also add a preprocessor #define called cl_khr_3d_image_writes. A kernel can now use this preprocessor #define to do something like the following:
// do something using the extension
// do something else or #error!
