MPI_Cart_coords

Determines process coords in cartesian topology given rank in group

Synopsis


#include "mpi.h"
int MPI_Cart_coords ( comm, rank, maxdims, coords )
MPI_Comm  comm;
int       rank;
int       maxdims;
int      *coords;

Input Parameters

comm - communicator with cartesian structure (handle)
rank - rank of a process within group of comm (integer)
maxdims - length of vector coords in the calling program (integer)

Output Parameter

coords - integer array (of size ndims) containing the cartesian coordinates of specified process (integer)

Notes for Fortran

All MPI routines in Fortran (except for MPI_WTIME and MPI_WTICK) have an additional argument ierr at the end of the argument list. ierr is an integer and has the same meaning as the return value of the routine in C. In Fortran, MPI routines are subroutines, and are invoked with the call statement.

All MPI objects (e.g., MPI_Datatype, MPI_Comm) are of type INTEGER in Fortran.

Errors

All MPI routines (except MPI_Wtime and MPI_Wtick) return an error value; C routines as the value of the function and Fortran routines in the last argument. Before the value is returned, the current MPI error handler is called. By default, this error handler aborts the MPI job. The error handler may be changed with MPI_Errhandler_set; the predefined error handler MPI_ERRORS_RETURN may be used to cause error values to be returned. Note that MPI does not guarentee that an MPI program can continue past an error.

MPI_SUCCESS - No error; MPI routine completed successfully.
MPI_ERR_TOPOLOGY - Invalid topology. Either there is no topology associated with this communicator, or it is not the correct type (e.g., MPI_CART when expecting MPI_GRAPH).
MPI_ERR_RANK - Invalid source or destination rank. Ranks must be between zero and the size of the communicator minus one; ranks in a receive (MPI_Recv, MPI_Irecv, MPI_Sendrecv, etc.) may also be MPI_ANY_SOURCE.
MPI_ERR_DIMS - Illegal dimension argument. A dimension argument is null or its length is less than or equal to zero.
MPI_ERR_ARG - Invalid argument. Some argument is invalid and is not identified by a specific error class (e.g., MPI_ERR_RANK).
