The OpenMP Fortran API provides additional features which you can use to supplement the existing FORTRAN 77, Fortran 90 and Fortran 95 language standards. See What is OpenMP? for more information.
The OpenMP Architecture Review Board (ARB) is responding to questions of interpretation about aspects of the API. Some of these questions may relate to interface features that have been implemented in this version of the XL Fortran compiler. Any answers given by this committee that are related to the interface may result in changes in future releases of the XL Fortran compiler, even if these changes result in incompatibilities with previous releases of the product.
