Naive prefix sum algorithm from GPU gems not working

I am referring to the sample code given in Example 39-1 here - https://developer.nvidia.com/gpugems/gpugems3/part-vi-gpu-computing/chapter-39-parallel-prefix-sum-scan-cuda which I have copied over.

This is my sample code to test the given -

#include <cuda_runtime.h>
#include "device_launch_parameters.h"
#include <iostream>

__global__
void scan(float *g_odata, float *g_idata, int n) {
	extern __shared__ float temp[]; // allocated on invocation
	int thid = threadIdx.x;
	int pout = 0, pin = 1;
	// load input into shared memory.
	// Exclusive scan: shift right by one and set first element to 0
	temp[pout * n + thid] = (thid > 0) ? g_idata[thid - 1] : 0;
	__syncthreads();
	for (int offset = 1; offset < n; offset *= 2)
	{
		pout = 1 - pout; // swap double buffer indices
		pin = 1 - pout;
		if (thid >= offset)
			temp[pout * n + thid] += temp[pin * n + thid - offset];
		else
			temp[pout * n + thid] = temp[pin * n + thid];
		__syncthreads();
	}
	g_odata[thid] = temp[pout * n + thid]; // write output
}

int main() {
	float output[6];
	float input[] = { 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 };
	float* d_output, * d_input;
	cudaMalloc((void**)&d_output, 6 * sizeof(float));
	cudaMalloc((void**)&d_input, 5 * sizeof(float));
	cudaMemcpy(d_input, input, 5 * sizeof(float), cudaMemcpyHostToDevice);
	scan << <1, 6 >> > (d_output, d_input, 5);
	cudaMemcpy(output, d_output, 6 * sizeof(float), cudaMemcpyDeviceToHost);
	cudaFree(d_output);
	cudaFree(d_input);
	for (int i = 0; i < 6; i++) {
		std::cout << output[i] << "\n";
	}
	return 0;
}

But this does not work. The answer I get is -

-2.15633e-10
4.59037e-41
4.34403e-44
0
1.4013e-45

What is going wrong?

There may be several problems. However one is that you have provided no shared allocation in your kernel launch.

Before asking for help here, my suggestion is to use proper CUDA error checking and run your code with cuda-memcheck. If you had done so, cuda-memcheck would have reported an error that would have at least focused your attention on shared memory access. Even if you don’t understand the error output, it is useful for others who may try to help you.
