Debugging OpenMP Programs

The OpenMP application programming interface (API) is a portable, parallel programming model for shared memory multiprocessor architectures, developed in collaboration with a number of computer vendors. Support for debugging Fortran, C++, and C OpenMP programs with dbx is based on the general multi-threaded debugging features of dbx. All of the dbx commands that operate on threads and LWPs can be used for OpenMP debugging. dbx does not support asynchronous thread control in OpenMP debugging.

This chapter is organized into the following sections:

See the OpenMP API Users Guide for information on the directives, run-time library routines, and environment variables comprising the OpenMP Version 2.0 Application Program Interfaces, as implemented by the Oracle Solaris Studio Fortran 95 and C compilers.
