Introducing the OpenMP API

The OpenMP Application Program Interface is a portable, parallel programming model for shared memory multimultithreaded architectures, developed in collaboration with a number of computer vendors. The specifications were created and are published by the OpenMP Architecture Review Board.

The OpenMP API is the recommended parallel programming model for all Solaris Studio compilers on Solaris platforms. See the Appendix for guidelines on converting legacy Fortran and C parallelization directives to OpenMP.
