get_global_id(3) Returns the unique global work-item ID value for dimension identified by dimindx.

size_t get_global_id(uint dimindx);


The global work-item ID specifies the work-item ID based on the number of global work-items specified to execute the kernel. Valid values of dimindx are 0 to get_work_dim(3clc)() - 1. For other values of dimindx, get_global_id() returns 0.

For clEnqueueTask(3clc), this returns 0.
