OpenCL™ Code Interoperability

The oneAPI programming model enables developers to continue using all OpenCL code features via different parts of the SYCL* API. The OpenCL code interoperability mode provided by SYCL helps reuse the existing OpenCL code while keeping the advantages of higher programming model interfaces provided by SYCL. There are 2 main parts in the interoperability mode:
  1. To create SYCL objects from OpenCL code objects. For example, a SYCL buffer can be constructed from an OpenCL
    or SYCL queue from a
  2. To get OpenCL code objects from SYCL objects. For example, launching an OpenCL kernel that uses an implicit
    associated to a SYCL accessor.
