atomic_dec - atomic_dec functions. int atomic_dec(volatile global(3clc) int *p); unsigned int atomic_dec(volatile global(3clc) unsigned int *p); int atomic_dec(volatile local(3clc) int *p); unsigned int atomic_dec(volatile local(3clc) unsigned int *p);
Read the 32-bit value (referred to as old) stored at location pointed by p. Compute (old - 1) and store result at location pointed by p. The function returns old. A 64-bit version of this function, atom_dec(3clc), is enabled by cl_khr_int64_base_atomics(3clc).
