MPI_Pack - Packs a datatype into contiguous memory
int MPI_Pack(const void *inbuf,
- - input buffer start (choice)
- - number of input data items (non-negative integer)
- - datatype of each input data item (handle)
- - output buffer size, in bytes (non-negative integer)
- - communicator for packed message (handle)
- - output buffer start (choice)
- - current position in buffer, in bytes (integer)
The input value of position is the first location in the output buffer to be
used for packing. position is incremented by the size of the packed message,
and the output value of position is the first location in the output buffer
following the locations occupied by the packed message. The comm argument is
the communicator that will be subsequently used for sending the packed

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

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 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
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.
- - Invalid argument. Some argument is invalid and is not identified by a
specific error class (e.g., MPI_ERR_RANK ).
- - Other error; use MPI_Error_string to get more information about
this error code.
