OpenCL C FFI bindings for the Rust programming language.


Rust FFI Bindings to the Khronos OpenCL C language headers, see the OpenCL Resource Guide.

OpenCL Packages
OpenCL Packages

The API for OpenCL versions and extensions are controlled by Rust features such as "CL_VERSION_2_0" and "cl_khr_gl_sharing".
The default features are "CL_VERSION_1_1" and "CL_VERSION_1_2".

Rust deprecation warnings are given for OpenCL API functions that are deprecated by an enabled OpenCL version e.g., clCreateCommandQueue is deprecated whenever "CL_VERSION_2_0" (or above) is enabled.

The Rust FFI files attempt to match the format and layout of the original C source files instead of bindgen output files to ease maintenance.

bindgen ../OpenCL-Headers/CL/opencl.h -o -- -I ../OpenCL-Headers/CL

The library is declared no_std.


OpenCL requires that an appropriate OpenCL hardware driver(s) and an OpenCL Installable Client Driver (ICD) are installed.
OpenCL GPU hardware driver(s) are installed with graphics drivers by the main manufacturers: Nvidia, AMD and Intel.
However, an OpenCL ICD must usually be installed manually by:

Note: you do not need to install an OpenCL ICD from the same manufacturer as your hardware.
In general the more up to date the OpenCL ICD, the better.
