for (OpenMP) 

Causes the work done in a for loop inside a parallel region to be divided among threads.


#pragma omp [parallel] for [clauses]
      for_statement

where,

clause (optional)

Zero or more clauses. See the Remarks section for a list of the clauses supported by for.

for_statement

A for loop. Undefined behavior will result if user code in the for loop changes the index variable.

The for directive supports the following OpenMP clauses:

If parallel is also specified, clause can be any clause accepted by the parallel or for directives, except nowait.

For more information, see 2.4.1 for Construct.

Output

4 OpenMP threads were used.
The sum of 1 through 10 is 55
