I’m trying to access some global constants from a CUDA kernel. It seems that const ints are visible to the kernels, but const floats are not. Does anyone have any ideas about this???
I’ve included a minimal code below that demonstrates the problem. I’m trying to compile on Windows XP using Visual Studio 2005 and CUDA 2.3 Beta.
const int global_int = 5;
const float global_float = 5.0f;
global void kernel();
kernel<<<1,1>>>(); return 0;
global void kernel()
int local_int = global_int; float local_float = global_float; // Code will not compile if this line is included
