       MPI_File_read  -  Reads  a  file starting at the location specified by the individual file
       pointer (blocking, noncollective).


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

Fortran Syntax

           INCLUDE 'mpif.h'
           MPI_FILE_READ( FH,  BUF, COUNT,
                   DATATYPE, STATUS, IERROR)
             <type>         BUF(*)

C++ Syntax

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

       void MPI::File::Read(void* buf, int count,
            const MPI::Datatype& datatype)


       fh        File handle (handle).

       count     Number of elements in buffer (integer).

       datatype  Data type of each buffer element (handle).


       buf       Initial address of buffer (integer).

       status    Status object (status).

       IERROR    Fortran only: Error status (integer).


       MPI_File_read attempts to read from the file associated with fh (at the current individual
       file  pointer position maintained by the system) a total number of count data items having
       datatype type into the user's buffer buf.  The data is taken out of  those  parts  of  the
       file  specified by the current view. MPI_File_read stores the number of data-type elements
       actually read 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.


       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.
