A knowledgeable customer asked why there is no OpenMP min or max reduction for C, as there is for Fortran. I agreed this seems useful. If anyone has suggestions about this, it would help me in submitting a feature request. The main problem I see is the lack of a standard C operator equivalent, and the general C rather than C++ orientation of OpenMP, but now it appears a lot more esoteric C++ stuff is being coupled into OpenMP.
