NAME

       MPI_Type_vector -  Creates a vector (strided) datatype

SYNOPSIS

       #include "mpi.h"
       int MPI_Type_vector(
               int count,
               int blocklen,
               int stride,
               MPI_Datatype old_type,
               MPI_Datatype *newtype )

INPUT PARAMETERS

       count  - number of blocks (nonnegative integer)
       blocklength
              - number of elements in each block (nonnegative integer)
       stride - number of elements between start of each block (integer)
       oldtype
              - old datatype (handle)

OUTPUT PARAMETER

       newtype
              - new datatype (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.
