atom_dec

64-bit atom_dec functions.

long atom_dec ( volatile __global long *p ,
  long val)
long atom_dec ( volatile __local long *p ,
  long val)
ulong atom_dec ( volatile __global ulong *p ,
  ulong val)
ulong atom_dec ( volatile __local ulong *p ,
  ulong val)

Description

Read the 64-bit value (referred to as old) stored at location pointed by p. Compute (old - 1) and store result at location pointed by p. The function returns old.

An application that wants to use this extension will need to include the #pragma OPENCL EXTENSION cl_khr_int64_base_atomics : enable in the OpenCL program source.

This function is performed in one atomic transaction. These transactions are atomic for the device executing these atomic functions. There is no guarantee of atomicity if the atomic operations to the same memory location are being performed by kernels executing on multiple devices.

Atomic operations on 64-bit integers and 32-bit integers (and float) are also atomic with regard to each other.
