NAME

MPI_File_read_ordered_begin - Reads a file at a location specified by a shared file pointer; beginning part of a split collective routine (nonblocking).

 

SYNTAX

C Syntax
    #include <mpi.h>
    int MPI_File_read_ordered_begin(MPI_File fh, void *buf, 
              int count, MPI_Datatype datatype)

Fortran Syntax
    INCLUDE 'mpif.h'
    MPI_FILE_READ_ORDERED_BEGIN(FH, BUF, COUNT, DATATYPE, IERROR)
                <type>          BUF(*)
                INTEGER         FH, COUNT, DATATYPE, IERROR

 

C++ Syntax

#include <mpi.h>
void MPI::File::Read_ordered_begin(void* buf, int count,
        const MPI::Datatype& datatype)

 

INPUT/OUTPUT PARAMETER

fh
File handle (handle).

 

INPUT PARAMETERS

count
Number of elements in buffer (integer).
datatype
Data type of each buffer element (handle).

 

OUTPUT PARAMETERS

buf
Initial address of buffer (choice).
IERROR
Fortran only: Error status (integer).

 

DESCRIPTION

MPI_File_read_ordered_begin is the beginning part of a split collective, nonblocking routine that must be called by all processes in the communicator group associated with the file handle fh. Each process may pass different argument values for the datatype and count arguments. Each process attempts to read, from the file associated with fh, a total number of count data items having datatype type into the user's buffer buf. For each process, the location in the file at which data is read is the position at which the shared file pointer would be after all processes whose ranks within the group are less than that of this process had read their data.

 

NOTES

All the nonblocking collective routines for data access are "split" into two routines, each with _begin or _end as a suffix. These split collective routines are subject to the semantic rules described in Section 9.4.5 of the MPI-2 standard.

 

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. For MPI I/O function errors, the default error handler is set to MPI_ERRORS_RETURN. The error handler may be changed with MPI_File_set_errhandler; the predefined error handler MPI_ERRORS_ARE_FATAL may be used to make I/O errors fatal. Note that MPI does not guarantee that an MPI program can continue past an error.
