Parameters

command_queue

Refers to the command-queue in which the write command will be queued. command_queue and buffer must be created with the same OpenCL context.

buffer

Refers to a valid buffer object.

blocking_write

Indicates if the write operations are blocking or non-blocking. If blocking_write is CL_TRUE, the OpenCL implementation copies the data referred to by ptr and enqueues the write operation in the command-queue. The memory pointed to by ptr can be reused by the application after the clEnqueueWriteBufferRect call returns.

If blocking_write is CL_FALSE, the OpenCL implementation will use ptr to perform a nonblocking write. As the write is non-blocking the implementation can return immediately. The memory pointed to by ptr cannot be reused by the application after the call returns. The event argument returns an event object which can be used to query the execution status of the write command. When the write command has completed, the memory pointed to by ptr can then be reused by the application.

buffer_origin

The (x, y, z) offset in the memory region associated with buffer. For a 2D rectangle region, the z value given by buffer_origin[2] should be 0. The offset in bytes is computed as buffer_origin[2] * buffer_slice_pitch + buffer_origin[1] * buffer_row_pitch + buffer_origin[0].

host_origin

The (x, y, z) offset in the memory region pointed to by ptr. For a 2D rectangle region, the z value given by host_origin[2] should be 0. The offset in bytes is computed as host_origin[2] * host_slice_pitch + host_origin[1] * host_row_pitch + host_origin[0].

region

The (width, height, depth) in bytes of the 2D or 3D rectangle being read or written. For a 2D rectangle copy, the depth value given by region[2] should be 1.

buffer_row_pitch

The length of each row in bytes to be used for the memory region associated with buffer. If buffer_row_pitch is 0, buffer_row_pitch is computed as region[0].

buffer_slice_pitch

The length of each 2D slice in bytes to be used for the memory region associated with buffer. If buffer_slice_pitch is 0, buffer_slice_pitch is computed as region[1] * buffer_row_pitch.

host_row_pitch

The length of each row in bytes to be used for the memory region pointed to by ptr. If host_row_pitch is 0, host_row_pitch is computed as region[0].

host_slice_pitch

The length of each 2D slice in bytes to be used for the memory region pointed to by ptr. If host_slice_pitch is 0, host_slice_pitch is computed as region[1] * host_row_pitch.

ptr

The pointer to buffer in host memory where data is to be written from.

event_wait_list , num_events_in_wait_list

event_wait_list and num_events_in_wait_list specify events that need to complete before this particular command can be executed. If event_wait_list is NULL, then this particular command does not wait on any event to complete. If event_wait_list is NULL, num_events_in_wait_list must be 0. If event_wait_list is not NULL, the list of events pointed to by event_wait_list must be valid and num_events_in_wait_list must be greater than 0. The events specified in event_wait_list act as synchronization points. The context associated with events in event_wait_list and command_queue must be the same. The memory associated with event_wait_list can be reused or freed after the function returns.

event

Returns an event object that identifies this particular write command and can be used to query or queue a wait for this particular command to complete. event can be NULL in which case it will not be possible for the application to query the status of this command or queue a wait for this command to complete.

Notes

Calling clEnqueueWriteBufferRect to update the latest bits in a region of the buffer object with the ptr argument value set to host_ptr and host_origin, buffer_origin values are the same, where host_ptr is a pointer to the memory region specified when the buffer object being written is created with CL_MEM_USE_HOST_PTR, must meet the following requirements in order to avoid undefined behavior:

  • The host memory region given by (buffer_origin region) contains the latest bits when the enqueued write command begins execution.
  • The buffer object or memory objects created from this buffer object are not mapped.
  • The buffer object or memory objects created from this buffer object are not used by any command-queue until the write command has finished execution.

Errors

clEnqueueWriteBufferRect returns CL_SUCCESS if the function is executed successfully. Otherwise, it returns one of the following errors:

  • CL_INVALID_COMMAND_QUEUE if command_queue is not a valid command-queue.
  • CL_INVALID_CONTEXT if the context associated with command_queue and buffer are not the same or if the context associated with command_queue and events in event_wait_list are not the same.
  • CL_INVALID_MEM_OBJECT if buffer is not a valid buffer object.
  • CL_INVALID_VALUE if the region being read specified by (buffer_origin, region, buffer_row_pitch, buffer_slice_pitch) is out of bounds.
  • CL_INVALID_VALUE if ptr is a NULL value.
  • CL_INVALID_VALUE if any region array element is 0.
  • CL_INVALID_VALUE if buffer_row_pitch is not 0 and is less than region[0].
  • CL_INVALID_VALUE if host_row_pitch is not 0 and is less than region[0].
  • CL_INVALID_VALUE if buffer_slice_pitch is not 0 and is less than region[1] * buffer_row_pitch and not a multiple of buffer_row_pitch.
  • CL_INVALID_VALUE if host_slice_pitch is not 0 and is less than region[1] * host_row_pitch and not a multiple of host_row_pitch.
  • CL_INVALID_EVENT_WAIT_LIST if event_wait_list is NULL and num_events_in_wait_list > 0, or event_wait_list is not NULL and num_events_in_wait_list is 0, or if event objects in event_wait_list are not valid events.
  • CL_MISALIGNED_SUB_BUFFER_OFFSET if buffer is a sub-buffer object and offset specified when the sub-buffer object is created is not aligned to CL_DEVICE_MEM_BASE_ADDR_ALIGN value for device associated with queue.
  • CL_EXEC_STATUS_ERROR_FOR_EVENTS_IN_WAIT_LIST if the read and write operations are blocking and the execution status of any of the events in event_wait_list is a negative integer value.
  • CL_MEM_OBJECT_ALLOCATION_FAILURE if there is a failure to allocate memory for data store associated with buffer.
  • CL_INVALID_OPERATION if clEnqueueWriteBufferRect is called on buffer which has been created with CL_MEM_HOST_READ_ONLY or CL_MEM_HOST_NO_ACCESS.
  • CL_OUT_OF_RESOURCES if there is a failure to allocate resources required by the OpenCL implementation on the device.
  • CL_OUT_OF_HOST_MEMORY if there is a failure to allocate resources required by the OpenCL implementation on the host.
