1 Enabling OpenMP

To activate the OpenMP extensions for C/C++ and Fortran, the compile-time flag -fopenmp must be specified. This enables the OpenMP directive #pragma omp in C/C++ and !$omp directives in free form, c$omp, *$omp and !$omp directives in fixed form, !$ conditional compilation sentinels in free form and c$, *$ and !$ sentinels in fixed form, for Fortran. The flag also arranges for automatic linking of the OpenMP runtime library (Runtime Library Routines).

A complete description of all OpenMP directives accepted may be found in the OpenMP Application Program Interface manual, version 3.1.
