C]MPI_Cartdim_getR] - Retrieves Cartesian topology information associated with a communicator.


C Syntax

C]#include <mpi.h>int MPI_Cartdim_get(MPI_Comm comm, int *ndims)R]Fortran Syntax

C]USE MPI! or the older form: INCLUDE [aq]mpif.h[aq]MPI_CARTDIM_GET(COMM, NDIMS, IERROR) INTEGER COMM, NDIMS, IERRORR]Fortran 2008 Syntax

C]USE mpi_f08MPI_Cartdim_get(comm, ndims, ierror) TYPE(MPI_Comm), INTENT(IN) :: comm INTEGER, INTENT(OUT) :: ndims INTEGER, OPTIONAL, INTENT(OUT) :: ierrorR]Input Parameter

C]commR] : Communicator with Cartesian structure (handle).

Output Parameters

C]ndimsR] : Number of dimensions of the Cartesian structure (integer).
C]IERRORR] : Fortran only: Error status (integer).


C]MPI_Cartdim_getR] returns the number of dimensions of the Cartesian structure.


Almost all MPI routines return an error value; C routines as the value of the function and Fortran routines in the last argument. 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 C]MPI_Comm_set_errhandlerR]; the predefined error handler C]MPI_ERRORS_RETURNR] 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.
