MPI_File_write(3) Open MPI MPI_File_write(3)

MPI_File_write - Writes a file starting at the location specified by the individual file pointer (blocking, noncollective).

#include <mpi.h>
int MPI_File_write(MPI_File fh, const void *buf,
	int count, MPI_Datatype datatype,
	MPI_Status *status)

USE MPI
! or the older form: INCLUDE 'mpif.h'
MPI_FILE_WRITE(FH, BUF, COUNT,
	DATATYPE, STATUS, IERROR)
	<type>	BUF(*)
	INTEGER	FH, COUNT, DATATYPE, STATUS(MPI_STATUS_SIZE), IERROR

USE mpi_f08
MPI_File_write(fh, buf, count, datatype, status, ierror)
	TYPE(MPI_File), INTENT(IN) :: fh
	TYPE(*), DIMENSION(..), INTENT(IN) :: buf
	INTEGER, INTENT(IN) :: count
	TYPE(MPI_Datatype), INTENT(IN) :: datatype
	TYPE(MPI_Status) :: status
	INTEGER, OPTIONAL, INTENT(OUT) :: ierror

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

File handle (handle).

Initial address of buffer (choice).
Number of elements in buffer (integer).
Data type of each buffer element (handle).

Status object (status).
Fortran only: Error status (integer).

MPI_File_write attempts to write into the file associated with fh (at the current individual file pointer position maintained by the system) a total number of count data items having datatype type from the user's buffer buf. The data is written into those parts of the file specified by the current view. MPI_File_write stores the number of datatype elements actually written in status. All other fields of status are undefined.

It is erroneous to call this function if MPI_MODE_SEQUENTIAL mode was specified when the file was opened.

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.
