Is it possible for C preprocessor directives to be used in an OpenCL kernel? I want to use macros in my kernel. For example, a simple indexing macro to simulate matrix access in an array:

Code :
#define ROWCOLSIZE   10 
#define D2(x,y)   ((x)*ROWCOLSIZE + (y))

It says they are supported but I can't seem to get them to work unless they are defined directly IN the kernel source. But this is not efficient, particularly if I have hundreds of directives.

Do you need a build argument? Otherwise can you use external functions in your kernel?
