17.2.152. MPI_File_write_at_all_begin

MPI_File_write_at_all_begin - Writes a file at explicitly specified offsets; beginning part of a split collective routine (nonblocking).

17.2.152.1. SYNTAX

17.2.152.1.1. C Syntax

#include <mpi.h>

int MPI_File_write_at_all_begin(MPI_File fh, MPI_Offset offset,
     const void *buf, int count, MPI_Datatype datatype)

17.2.152.1.2. Fortran Syntax (see FORTRAN 77 NOTES)

USE MPI
! or the older form: INCLUDE 'mpif.h'
MPI_FILE_WRITE_AT_ALL_BEGIN(FH, OFFSET, BUF, COUNT, DATATYPE, IERROR)
     <type>  BUF(*)
     INTEGER FH, COUNT, DATATYPE, IERROR
     INTEGER(KIND=MPI_OFFSET_KIND)   OFFSET

17.2.152.1.3. Fortran 2008 Syntax

USE mpi_f08
MPI_File_write_at_all_begin(fh, offset, buf, count, datatype, ierror)
     TYPE(MPI_File), INTENT(IN) :: fh
     INTEGER(KIND=MPI_OFFSET_KIND), INTENT(IN) :: offset
     TYPE(*), DIMENSION(..), INTENT(IN), ASYNCHRONOUS :: buf
     INTEGER, INTENT(IN) :: count
     TYPE(MPI_Datatype), INTENT(IN) :: datatype
     INTEGER, OPTIONAL, INTENT(OUT) :: ierror

17.2.152.2. INPUT/OUTPUT PARAMETER

  • fh: File handle (handle).

17.2.152.3. INPUT PARAMETERS

  • offset: File offset (handle).

  • buf: Initial address of buffer (choice).

  • count: Number of elements in buffer (integer).

  • datatype: Data type of each buffer element (handle).

17.2.152.4. OUTPUT PARAMETER

  • IERROR: Fortran only: Error status (integer).

17.2.152.5. DESCRIPTION

MPI_File_write_at_all_begin is the beginning part of a split collective, that is, a nonblocking routine that attempts to write into the file associated with fh (at the offset position) a total number of count data items having datatype type from the user’s buffer buf. The offset is in etype units relative to the current view. That is, holes are not counted when locating an offset. The data is written into those parts of the file specified by the current view.

17.2.152.6. FORTRAN 77 NOTES

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

INTEGER*MPI_OFFSET_KIND OFFSET

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

17.2.152.7. NOTES

All the nonblocking collective routines for data access are “split” into two routines, each with _begin or _end as a suffix. These split collective routines are subject to the semantic rules described in Section 9.4.5 of the MPI-2 standard.

17.2.152.8. ERRORS

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. 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.
