Function "ReadSources()" to read .cl source file

I read sample programs with Intel OpenCL SDK 1.5. In a sample of "BitonicSort", funtion name"ReadSources()" is used for reading .cl source file. This is the first time to find out this function. Please tell me where this function is defined and described. Is the function included to any API?

ReadSources is a helper function which is common for all samples. You can find ReadSources functionimplementation in\\common\\utils.cpp source file. The function declaration is in\\common\\utils.h.This helperfunctionjust opens source .cl file and reads content in a char buffer for furtherOpenCL program creation usingclCreateProgramWithSource.

Dear Sir,
Thank you. I can confirm a description of "ReadSource()" in \\common\\utils.cpp.
Then, does a program of NVIDIA OpenCL work in Intel OpenCL SDK 1.5? Is there the copatiblity between two? Because I find out the different descriptions of a procedure before .cl file reading compared between "BitonicSort" in Intel OpenCL SDK 1.5 sample program and a below program.
Here, I attach a sample program for NVIDIA OpenCL which includes "Hello.cpp" and "". As a result of running this program, a kernel program cannot be loaded.
