C Specification

To retain a memory object, call the function

cl_int clRetainMemObject(
    cl_mem memobj);

Parameters

  • memobj specifies the memory object to be retained.

Description

The memobj reference count is incremented.

clRetainMemObject returns CL_SUCCESS if the function is executed successfully. Otherwise, it returns one of the following errors:

  • CL_INVALID_MEM_OBJECT if memobj is not a valid memory object (buffer or image object).

  • CL_OUT_OF_RESOURCES if there is a failure to allocate resources required by the OpenCL implementation on the device.

  • CL_OUT_OF_HOST_MEMORY if there is a failure to allocate resources required by the OpenCL implementation on the host.

clCreateBuffer, clCreateBufferWithProperties, clCreateSubBuffer, clCreateImage, clCreateImageWithProperties, clCreateImage2D, clCreateImage3D and clCreatePipe perform an implicit retain.
