MPI_Group_range_incl

Creates a new group from ranges of ranks in an existing group

Synopsis


#include "mpi.h"
int MPI_Group_range_incl ( group, n, ranges, newgroup )
MPI_Group group, *newgroup;
int       n, ranges[][3];

Input Parameters

group - group (handle)
n - number of triplets in array ranges (integer)
ranges - a one-dimensional array of integer triplets, of the form (first rank, last rank, stride) indicating ranks in group or processes to be included in newgroup

Output Parameter

newgroup - new group derived from above, in the order defined by ranges (handle)

Note

This implementation does not currently check to see that the list of ranges to include are valid ranks in the group.

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_GROUP - Null group passed to function.
MPI_ERR_INTERN - This error is returned when some part of the MPICH implementation is unable to acquire memory.
MPI_ERR_ARG - Invalid argument. Some argument is invalid and is not identified by a specific error class (e.g., MPI_ERR_RANK).
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.
