MPI_Dims_create(3)		      MPI		    MPI_Dims_create(3)

NAME
       MPI_Dims_create -  Creates a division of	processors in a	cartesian grid

SYNOPSIS
       int MPI_Dims_create(int nnodes, int ndims, int *dims)

INPUT PARAMETERS
       nnodes -	number of nodes	in a grid (integer)
       ndims  -	number of cartesian dimensions (integer)

IN/OUT PARAMETER
       dims   -	 integer array of size ndims specifying	the number of nodes in
	      each dimension.  A value of  0  indicates	 that  MPI_Dims_create
	      should fill in a suitable	value.

THREAD AND INTERRUPT SAFETY
       This  routine  is  thread-safe.	 This  means  that this	routine	may be
       safely used by multiple threads without the need	for any	 user-provided
       thread  locks.  However,	the routine is not interrupt safe.  Typically,
       this is due to the use of memory	allocation routines such as malloc  or
       other  non-MPICH	 runtime  routines  that are themselves	not interrupt-
       safe.

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
       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.  Before the value is returned, the current MPI error
       handler is called.  By default, this error handler aborts the MPI  job.
       The error handler may be	changed	with MPI_Comm_set_errhandler (for com-
       municators), MPI_File_set_errhandler (for files),  and  MPI_Win_set_er-
       rhandler	 (for  RMA windows).  The MPI-1	routine	MPI_Errhandler_set may
       be used but its	use  is	 deprecated.   The  predefined	error  handler
       MPI_ERRORS_RETURN  may  be  used	 to cause error	values to be returned.
       Note that MPI does not guarentee	that an	MPI program can	continue  past
       an  error;  however, MPI	implementations	will attempt to	continue when-
       ever possible.

       MPI_SUCCESS
	      -	No error; MPI routine completed	successfully.
