Description Tomi Aarnio 2013-02-21 06:28:58 PST
For example, enqueueReadImage is currently defined as follows:

void enqueueReadImage(
                    WebCLImage              image,
                    CLboolean               blockingRead,
                    CLuint[2]               origin,
                    CLuint[2]               region,
                    CLuint                  rowPitch,
                    CLuint                  slicePitch,
                    ArrayBuffer             ptr,
                    optional WebCLEvent[]?  eventWaitList,
                    optional WebCLEvent?    event);

The 'slicePitch' parameter is redundant/confusing when dealing with 2D images, so we should remove it.

3D image support can be reinstated in a backward-compatible manner by overloading 'rowPitch' so that it can be a single CLuint or a CLuint[2] array.

Fixed by removing 'slicePitch' parameters in enqueue*Image(). 

NOTE: The corresponding slice pitch parameters in enqueue*BufferRect() must remain in place, because they have nothing to do with 3D images.
