NAME

       MPI_Cart_sub  -   Partitions  a  communicator into subgroups which  form lower-dimensional
       cartesian subgrids

SYNOPSIS

       #include <mpi.h>
       int MPI_Cart_sub(MPI_Comm comm, int *remdims, MPI_Comm *pnewcomm)

INPUT PARAMETERS

       comm   - communicator with cartesian structure (handle)
       remdims
              - the i th entry of remdims specifies whether the i th dimension  is  kept  in  the
              subgrid (true) or is dropped (false) (logical vector)

OUTPUT PARAMETER

       pnewcomm
              - communicator containing the subgrid that includes the calling process (handle)

NOTES FOR FORTRAN

       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 Fortran.

ERRORS

       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.
       MPI_SUCCESS
              - No error; MPI routine completed successfully.
       MPI_ERR_TOPOLOGY
              - 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 ).
       MPI_ERR_COMM
              - Invalid communicator.  A common error is to use a null  communicator  in  a  call
              (not even allowed in MPI_Comm_rank ).
       MPI_ERR_ARG
              -  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).

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

       The LAM Team would like the thank the MPICH Team for the handy  program  to  generate  man
       pages   ("doctext"  from  ftp://ftp.mcs.anl.gov/pub/sowing/sowing.tar.gz  ),  the  initial
       formatting, and some initial text for most of the MPI-1 man pages.
