A.18 Nested for Directives

 

The new home for Visual Studio documentation is Visual Studio 2017 Documentation on docs.microsoft.com.

The following example of for directive nesting (Section 2.9 on page 33) is compliant because the inner and outer for directives bind to different parallel regions:

#pragma omp parallel default(shared)  
{  
    #pragma omp for  
        for (i=0; i<n; i++)   
        {  
            #pragma omp parallel shared(i, n)  
            {  
                #pragma omp for  
                    for (j=0; j<n; j++)  
                        work(i, j);  
            }  
        }  
}  

A following variation of the preceding example is also compliant:

#pragma omp parallel default(shared)  
{  
    #pragma omp for  
        for (i=0; i<n; i++)  
            work1(i, n);  
}  
  
void work1(int i, int n)  
{  
    int j;  
    #pragma omp parallel default(shared)  
    {  
        #pragma omp for  
            for (j=0; j<n; j++)  
                work2(i, j);  
    }  
    return;  
}
