NAME

MPI_Cart_coords - Determines process coords in Cartesian topology given rank in group.

 

SYNTAX

 

C Syntax

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

 

Fortran Syntax

INCLUDE 'mpif.h'
MPI_CART_COORDS(COMM, RANK, MAXDIMS, COORDS, IERROR)
        INTEGER COMM, RANK, MAXDIMS, COORDS(*), IERROR

 

C++ Syntax

#include <mpi.h>
void Cartcomm::Get_coords(int rank, int maxdims, 
        int coords[]) const

 

INPUT PARAMETERS

comm
Communicator with Cartesian structure (handle).
rank
Rank of a process within group of comm (integer).
maxdims

 Length of vector coord in the calling program (integer).

 

OUTPUT PARAMETERS

coords
Integer array (of size ndims,which was defined by MPI_Cart_create call) containing the Cartesian coordinates of specified process (integer).
IERROR
Fortran only: Error status (integer).

 

DESCRIPTION

The inverse mapping, rank-to-coordinates translation is provided by MPI_Cart_coords.

 

ERRORS

Almost all MPI routines return an error value; C routines as the value of the function and Fortran routines in the last argument. C++ functions do not return errors. If the default error handler is set to MPI::ERRORS_THROW_EXCEPTIONS, then on error the C++ exception mechanism will be used to throw an MPI:Exception object.

Before the error value is returned, the current MPI error handler is called. By default, this error handler aborts the MPI job, except for I/O function errors. The error handler may be changed with MPI_Comm_set_errhandler; the predefined error handler MPI_ERRORS_RETURN may be used to cause error values to be returned. Note that MPI does not guarantee that an MPI program can continue past an error.
