MPI_Group_range_excl(3) MPI MPI_Group_range_excl(3)
MPI_Group_range_excl - Produces a group by excluding ranges of
processes from an existing group
int MPI_Group_range_excl(MPI_Group group, int n, int ranges,
group - group (handle)
n - number of elements in array ranks (integer)
ranges - a one-dimensional array of integer triplets of the form (first
rank, last rank, stride), indicating the ranks in group of
processes to be excluded from the output group newgroup .
- new group derived from above, preserving the order in group
The MPI standard requires that each of the ranks to be excluded must be
a valid rank in the group and all elements must be distinct or the
function is erroneous.
THREAD AND INTERRUPT SAFETY
This routine is thread-safe. This means that this routine may be
safely used by multiple threads without the need for any user-provided
thread locks. However, the routine is not interrupt safe. Typically,
this is due to the use of memory allocation routines such as malloc or
other non-MPICH runtime routines that are themselves not interrupt-
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
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_Comm_set_errhandler (for
communicators), MPI_File_set_errhandler (for files), and
MPI_Win_set_errhandler (for RMA windows). The MPI-1 routine
MPI_Errhandler_set may be used but its use is deprecated. 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; however, MPI implementations will
attempt to continue whenever possible.
- No error; MPI routine completed successfully.
- Null or invalid group passed to function.
- This error is returned when some part of the MPICH
implementation is unable to acquire memory.
- 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 .
- Invalid argument. Some argument is invalid and is not
identified by a specific error class (e.g., MPI_ERR_RANK ).
