CLCC is a compiler for OpenCL kernel source files. It is intended to be a tool for application developers who need to incorporate OpenCL source code into their programs and who want to verify their OpenCL code actually gets compiled by the driver before their program tries to compile it on-demand.
The benefits of using CLCC are simple: when building an OpenCL application, you write "normal" code and OpenCL code. The normal code gets checked by your ordinary compiler, but the OpenCL code is not, leaving you with the task of handling compilation errors in your application code. Something which isn't always possible or easy.
By compiling your code with CLCC during the build phase, you can quickly spot errors and fix them in your favorite development environment.
CLCC can be invoked from the command-line using the following syntax:
If you specify more than on OpenCL source file on the command line, the files are compiled into a single program. Note that this behavior differs from the behavior in version 0.1

To build CLCC you will need to have a copy of the Boost Libraries installed on your system. You will find these at http://www.boost.org This version was built against Boost version 1.47.0
To generate makefiles and/or project files for your favorite IDE on your favorite platform, you will need CMake version 2.8 or higher, which you can find at http://www.cmake.org

To build CLCC from source, follow these steps:
This code was built and tested on the following platforms:
The code should compile on any decent C++ compiler, but your mileage may vary.
To run CLCC on any platform you will need a properly installed OpenCL driver. CLCC will attempt to locate the OpenCL dynamic library automatically, but if it fails you can try to pass it to CLCC by using the --clpath command line argument
