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.
