>From what I understand, OpenMP is still a niche technology, used
on massively parallel architectures, for subatomic particle simulations
and that sort of thing.  Interesting, yes.  But useful?  That's

Also, the OpenMP specification relies heavily on preprocessing
and other language features so its not like most conventional
for concurrent programming such as the traditional library API.

It's something of a paradigm shift.
