orphaned cancel vs cancellation point

Post by fewl9012 »

P174:21, "An OpenMP program with orphaned cancellation point constructs is non-conforming."

Yet the cancel construct, which includes a cancellation point, does not have this restriction, at least not that I could find. Why does cancellation point?
