       MPI_Cart_coords  -   Determines  process  coords  in cartesian topology
       given rank in group


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


       comm   - communicator with cartesian structure (handle)
       rank   - rank of a process within group of comm (integer)
              - length of vector coords in the calling program (integer)


       coords - integer array  (of  size  ndims  )  containing  the  cartesian
              coordinates of specified process (integer)


       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


       If an error occurs in an MPI function, the current MPI error handler is
       called  to  handle  it.   By default, this error handler aborts the MPI
       job.  The error handler may be changed with  MPI_Errhandler_set  ;  the
       predefined  error  handler MPI_ERRORS_RETURN may be used to cause error
       values to be returned (in C and Fortran; this  error  handler  is  less
       useful  in  with  the  C++  MPI bindings.  The predefined error handler
       MPI::ERRORS_THROW_EXCEPTIONS should be used in C++ if the  error  value
       needs  to  be recovered).  Note that MPI does not guarantee that an MPI
       program can continue past an error.

       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.  The C++  bindings  for  MPI  do  not  return  error
       values;  instead,  error values are communicated by throwing exceptions
       of type MPI::Exception (but  not  by  default).   Exceptions  are  only
       thrown if the error value is not MPI::SUCCESS .

       Note  that  if  the MPI::ERRORS_RETURN handler is set in C++, while MPI
       functions will return upon an error, there will be no  way  to  recover
       what the actual error value was.
              - No error; MPI routine completed successfully.
              -  Invalid  communicator.   A  common  error  is  to  use a null
              communicator in a call (not even allowed in MPI_Comm_rank ).
              - Invalid topology.  Either there is no topology associated with
              this communicator, or it is not the correct type (e.g., MPI_CART
              when expecting MPI_GRAPH ).
              - 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 .

              -  Illegal  dimension argument.  A dimension argument is null or
              its length is less than or equal to zero.
              - Invalid  argument.   Some  argument  is  invalid  and  is  not
              identified  by a specific error class.  This is typically a NULL
              pointer or other such error.


       For more information, please see the official MPI Forum web site, which
       contains  the  text  of  both  the  MPI-1  and  MPI-2 standards.  These
       documents contain detailed information about each MPI function (most of
       which is not duplicated in these man pages).


       The  LAM Team would like the thank the MPICH Team for the handy program
       to       generate        man        pages        ("doctext"        from     ),    the    initial
       formatting, and some initial text for most of the MPI-1 man pages.
