Abstract

Disclosed is a method to specify data dependency within parallel loops through high-level constructs in a process of parallelizing an application for parallel execution on a shared memory multiprocessor. The user can limit the number of consecutive iterations of a parallel loop that is allowed to be executed concurrently by using special designed directives.
