    user defined data Structures as kernel arguments


    I have been working on a kernel for some simulation application where I am using a defined data Structure inside my kernel. I am however having some issues with it and was hoping for some help. My program keeps dying at a certain point in my kernel. Here is the code in question:

    Data Structure
    Code :
    struct TLM_node {
    	float v1;
    	float v2;
    	float v3;
    	float v4;
    typedef struct TLM_node nodeTLM;

    Code :
    __kernel void meshTLM_scatter_kernel(
    	__global nodeTLM* inputMesh,
    	__global nodeTLM* outputMesh,
            __global float* test,
    	__local nodeTLM* subMesh)
    	// Block, Thread and global ID's.
    	// Local and Global work size dimensions
    	// Block index
        int blockX = get_group_id(0);
        int blockY = get_group_id(1);
        // Thread index
        int threadX = get_local_id(0);
        int threadY = get_local_id(1);
    	// Local Work Group Size (x and y)
    	int localWidth = get_local_size(0);
    	int localHeight = get_local_size(1);
    	// Global work size
    	int globalWidth=get_global_size(0);
    	int globalHeight=get_global_size(1);
    	// Global id of this thread
    	int globalX=get_global_id(0);
    	int globalY=get_global_id(1);
    	int col=blockX*localWidth+threadX;
    	int row=blockY*localHeight+threadY;
    // Just a test
    	if(threadX==0 && threadY==0){
    		subMesh[0]=inputMesh[0];        // Kills my program
            // subMesh[0].v1=inputMesh[0].v1  // Does not kill my program

    I can't figure out why I am unable to copy an entire node (nodeTLM) from my inputMesh variable however I can copy individual structure elements.

    Thanks for any help you can offer,

    I feel like it might just be a stupid mistake.

    Re: user defined data Structures as kernel arguments

    If you can copy individual structure elements, then you should be able copy the entire struct as well. This looks like a bug in the implementation to me. Please file a bug report against the implementation.
