Number of blocks (integer) -- also number of entries in arrays array_of_types, array_of_displacements, and array_of_blocklengths.
Number of elements in each block (array of integers).
Byte displacement of each block (array of integers).
Type of elements in each block (array of handles to data-type objects).

New data type (handle).
Fortran only: Error status (integer).

MPI_Type_create_struct creates a structured data type. This routine replaces MPI_Type_struct, which is now deprecated.

NOTE - This routine replaces MPI_Type_struct, which is deprecated. See the man page MPI_Type_struct(3) for information about that routine.

The MPI standard prescribes portable Fortran syntax for the ARRAY_OF_DISPLACEMENTS(*) argument only for Fortran 90. FORTRAN 77 users may use the non-portable syntax


INTEGER*MPI_ADDRESS_KIND ARRAY_OF_DISPLACEMENTS(*)

where MPI_ADDRESS_KIND is a constant defined in mpif.h and gives the length of the declared integer in bytes.

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. By default, this error handler aborts the MPI job, except for I/O function errors. The error handler may be changed with MPI_Comm_set_errhandler; the predefined error handler MPI_ERRORS_RETURN 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.
