<!-- ================================ DESCRIPTION -->
<refsect1 id="description"><title>Description</title>
<function>async_work_group_copy</function> performs an
async copy of <varname>num_gentypes</varname> <type>gentype</type> elements from
<varname>src</varname> to <varname>dst</varname>. The async copy is performed by all
work-items in a work-group and this built-in function must therefore be encountered
by all work-items in a work-group executing the kernel with the same argument values;
otherwise the results are undefined.
This rule applies to ND-ranges implemented with uniform
and non-uniform work-groups.
Returns an event object that can be used by
<citerefentry><refentrytitle>wait_group_events</refentrytitle></citerefentry> to
wait for the async copy to finish. The <varname>event</varname> argument can also be
used to associate the <function>async_work_group_copy</function> with a previous
async copy allowing an event to be shared by multiple async copies; otherwise
<varname>event</varname> should be zero.
If <varname>event</varname> argument is not zero, the event object supplied in
<varname>event</varname> argument will be returned.
This function does not perform any implicit synchronization of source data such as
using a <citerefentry><refentrytitle>barrier</refentrytitle></citerefentry> before
performing the copy.
The kernel must wait for the completion of all async copies using the
<function>wait_group_events</function> built-in function before
exiting; otherwise the behavior is undefined.
<!-- ================================ NOTES -->
<refsect1 id="notes"><title>Notes</title>
<function>async_work_group_copy</function> and
<function>async_work_group_strided_copy</function> for 3-component
vector types behave as <function>async_work_group_copy</function> and
<function>async_work_group_strided_copy</function> respectively for 4-component vector
<!-- ================================ EXAMPLE -->
<refsect2 id="example1">
<informaltable frame="none">
<tgroup cols="1" align="left" colsep="0" rowsep="0">
<colspec colname="col1" colnum="1" />
Example goes here - it will be set in "code" type with white space preserved.
