Compiler Error C3040

Error Message

'var' : type of variable in 'reduction' clause is incompatible with reduction operator 'operator'

A variable in a reduction clause cannot be used with the reduction operator.

The following sample generates C3040:

// C3040.cpp
// compile with: /openmp /c
#include "omp.h"
double d;

int main() {
   #pragma omp parallel reduction(&:d)   // C3040

   #pragma omp parallel reduction(-:d)  // OK
