NAME

       MPI_Scatterv -  Scatters a buffer in parts to all tasks in a group

SYNOPSIS

       #include <mpi.h>
       int MPI_Scatterv(void *sbuf, int *scounts, int *disps,
                       MPI_Datatype sdtype, void* rbuf, int rcount,
                       MPI_Datatype rdtype, int root, MPI_Comm comm)

INPUT PARAMETERS

       sbuf   - address of send buffer (choice, significant only at root )
       scounts
              - integer array (of length group size) specifying the number of elements to send to
              each processor
       disps  - integer array  (of  length  group  size).  Entry  i  specifies  the  displacement
              (relative to sendbuf  from which to take the outgoing data to process i

       sdtype - data type of send buffer elements (handle)
       rcount - number of elements in receive buffer (integer)
       rtype  - data type of receive buffer elements (handle)
       root   - rank of sending process (integer)
       comm   - communicator (handle)

OUTPUT PARAMETER

       rbuf   - address of receive buffer (choice)

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_COMM
              -  Invalid  communicator.   A  common error is to use a null communicator in a call
              (not even allowed in MPI_Comm_rank ).
       MPI_ERR_OTHER
              - A collective implementation was not able to  be  located  at  run-time  for  this
              communicator.
       MPI_ERR_OTHER
              - A communicator that contains some non-local IMPI procs was used for some function
              which has not yet had the IMPI  extensions  implemented  yet.   For  example,  most
              collectives on IMPI communicators have not been implemented yet.
       MPI_ERR_COUNT
              - Invalid count argument.  Count arguments must be non-negative; a count of zero is
              often valid.
       MPI_ERR_TYPE
              -  Invalid  datatype  argument.   May   be   an   uncommitted   MPI_Datatype   (see
              MPI_Type_commit ).
       MPI_ERR_BUFFER
              - Invalid buffer pointer.  Usually a null buffer where one is not valid.
       MPI_ERR_ROOT
              -  Invalid  root.  The root must be specified as a rank in the communicator.  Ranks
              must be between zero and the size of the communicator minus one.
       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.

       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  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.
