       clGetDeviceIDs - Obtain the list of devices available on a platform.

       cl_int clGetDeviceIDs(cl_platform_id platform, cl_device_type device_type,
                             cl_uint num_entries, cl_device_id *devices, cl_uint *num_devices);


           Refers to the platform ID returned by clGetPlatformIDs(3clc) or can be NULL. If
           platform is NULL, the behavior is implementation-defined.

           A bitfield that identifies the type of OpenCL device. The device_type can be used to
           query specific OpenCL devices or all OpenCL devices available. The valid values for
           device_type are specified in the following table.

           The number of cl_device_id entries that can be added to devices. If devices is not
           NULL, the num_entries must be greater than zero.

           A list of OpenCL devices found. The cl_device_id values returned in devices can be
           used to identify a specific OpenCL device. If devices argument is NULL, this argument
           is ignored. The number of OpenCL devices returned is the mininum of the value
           specified by num_entries or the number of OpenCL devices whose type matches

           The number of OpenCL devices available that match device_type. If num_devices is NULL,
           this argument is ignored.


       clGetDeviceIDs may return all or a subset of the actual physical devices present in the
       platform and that match device_type.


       clGetDeviceIDs returns CL_SUCCESS if the function is executed successfully. Otherwise it
       returns one of the following:

       ·   CL_INVALID_PLATFORM if platform is not a valid platform.

       ·   CL_INVALID_DEVICE_TYPE if device_type is not a valid value.

       ·   CL_INVALID_VALUE if num_entries is equal to zero and devices is not NULL or if both
           num_devices and devices are NULL.

       ·   CL_DEVICE_NOT_FOUND if no OpenCL devices that matched device_type were found.

       ·   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.
