    deafult memory value?

    when we create a buffer object using clCreateBuffer(), what is the default value of the memory elements?
    i ran sample test and I got zero every time. So I am confused that I am getting this ok or this is some garbage value value and its all zero by coincidence.

    I don't recall anything in the specification saying memory will be initialized so I would not rely on the behavior you are seeing; it might change with a driver or OS update, or on other hardware. Note than OpenCL 1.2 added buffer and image initialization functions (I think they are clEnqueueFillBuffer/Image).
