OpenMP in pure procedures

OpenMP in pure procedures


According OpenMP 2.5 specification we can't use OpenMP in pure procedures. Why so? I mean, what if I what use PURE procedures also for compiler-checking of purity of my code (not only for parallelization)?

For more complete information about compiler optimizations, see our Optimization Notice.

Have you considered using conditional compilation?

When _OPENMP not defined compile the affected routines with PURE

When _OPENMP defined compile the affected routines without PURE

If you use the Fortran PreProcessor you could define a macro as follows

#ifdef _OPENMP
#define TEST_PURE
#define TEST_PURE pure

Then use as

TEST_PURE function foo(a,b,c)
