Hello Community Members,
I use VS2003 with Intel C++ 9.0 compiler. I'm new in OpenMP programming and especially in debugging. I'd like to debug and see my variables in my programs written using OpenMP paralellization directives. How can I start with learning OpenMP debugging and programming ? What kind of tools should I use for this purpose?

Sincerely

Intel Thread Checker is an excellent tool for checking correctness of OpenMP parallelization.

Hello Cem,

The best way to begin learning OpenMP is by reading the OpenMP Application Program Interface (v2.5) at www.openmp.org. It explains all of the directives and API functions and contains dozens of example codes.

Tim is right aboutIntel Thread Checker. It's an excellent tool for debugging OpenMP programs.Intel Thread Profiler can help you tune your OpenMP program once it is debugged.

Henry
