Shader modules have unique identifiers associated with them. To query an implementation provided identifier, call:
// Provided by VK_EXT_shader_module_identifier void vkGetShaderModuleIdentifierEXT( VkDevice device, VkShaderModule shaderModule, VkShaderModuleIdentifierEXT* pIdentifier);
deviceis the logical device that created the shader module.
shaderModuleis the handle of the shader module.
pIdentifieris a pointer to the returned VkShaderModuleIdentifierEXT.
The identifier returned by the implementation must only depend on
shaderIdentifierAlgorithmUUID and information provided in the
VkShaderModuleCreateInfo which created
The implementation may return equal identifiers for two different
VkShaderModuleCreateInfo structures if the difference does not affect
Identifiers are only meaningful on different VkDevice objects if the
device the identifier was queried from had the same
shaderModuleIdentifierAlgorithmUUID as the device consuming the
