Which TI OpenCL Version is Installed?ΒΆ

  1. Executing the command clocl --version will display the version of the OpenCL compiler installed.

  2. Executing the command ls -l /usr/lib/libOpenCL* will display the OpenCL libraries installed on the device. Follow the soft links from /usr/lib/libOpenCL.so to a fully version qualified libOpenCL library like /usr/lib/libOpenCL.so.1.1.0. The version of the library will indicate which version of the OpenCL package is installed.

  3. If the device is running Ubuntu and ti-opencl was installed using dpkg or apt-get, then the command dpkg -s ti-opencl will display the currently installed version.

  4. From OpenCL C source, the predefined macro __TI_OCL_VERSION will contain an encoded representation of the OpenCL product version. This macro can be used with the compiler’s preprocessor to conditionally compile regions based on the product version of OpenCL. The 4 components of the product version xx.yy.zz.ww are encoded in a 32-bit value in the pattern 0xXXYYZZWWu. For example, product version 01.01.02.12 would be returned as 0x01010212u when __TI_OCL_VERSION is referenced.

  5. The product version can be queried programmatically in an application by using the OpenCL APIs to query the platform version. The returned string will have a format similar to: OpenCL 1.1 TI product version 1.1.1.0. Sample C++ code to query the version follows:

    #include <CL/cl.hpp>
    #include <iostream>
    
    std::vector<cl::Platform> platforms;
    std::string               str;
    
    cl::Platform::get(&platforms);
    platforms[0].getInfo(CL_PLATFORM_VERSION, &str);
    std::cout <<  str << std::endl;
