Directive in Openacc corresponding to omp parallel section?

I was wondering if there is any directive in Openacc corresponding to Omp parallel section.

Could you give me some idea about this?

Hi limtaejun,

OpenACC does have “acc parallel” which is a similar work-sharing construct.

This article gives a good description of both the “kernels” and “parallel” constructs as well as discusses some of the similarities to OpenMP’s “parallel”. http://www.pgroup.com/lit/articles/insider/v4n2a1.htm

Hope this helps,
Mat
