NAME

       MPI_File_write_at_all   -  Writes  a  file  at  explicitly  specified  offsets  (blocking,
       collective).

SYNTAX

       C Syntax
           #include <mpi.h>
           int MPI_File_write_at_all(MPI_File fh, MPI_Offset offset, void *buf,
                  int count, MPI_Datatype datatype, MPI_Status *status)

       Fortran Syntax (see FORTRAN 77 NOTES)
           INCLUDE 'mpif.h'
           MPI_FILE_WRITE_AT_ALL(FH,  OFFSET,  BUF, COUNT,
                   DATATYPE, STATUS,  IERROR)
             <type> BUF(*)
             INTEGER FH, COUNT, DATATYPE, STATUS(MPI_STATUS_SIZE), IERROR
             INTEGER(KIND=MPI_OFFSET_KIND) OFFSET

C++ Syntax

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

       void MPI::File::Write_at_all(MPI::Offset offset, const void* buf,
            int count, const MPI::Datatype& datatype)

INPUT PARAMETERS

       fh        File handle (handle).

       offset    File offset (integer).

       buf       Initial address of buffer (choice).

       count     Number of elements in buffer (integer).

       datatype  Data type of each buffer element (handle).

OUTPUT PARAMETERS

       status    Status object (status).

       IERROR    Fortran only: Error status (integer).

DESCRIPTION

       MPI_File_write_at_all is a collective  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.  MPI_File_write_at_all  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.

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.

ERRORS

       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.
