OpenCL Kernel Compiler Project

A compiler for OpenCL Kernel files designed to be used during OpenCL application development is now available on SourceForge. The use of this tool alleviates the need for building compiler diagnostic message retrieval code into applications that use OpenCL. It allows developers to spot compilation errors during source builds instead of at run-time.
