MPI_Init(3)			      MPI			   MPI_Init(3)

NAME
       MPI_Init	-  Initialize the MPI execution	environment

SYNOPSIS
       int MPI_Init( int *argc,	char ***argv )

INPUT PARAMETERS
       argc   -	Pointer	to the number of arguments
       argv   -	Pointer	to the argument	vector

THREAD AND SIGNAL SAFETY
       This  routine must be called by one thread only.	 That thread is	called
       the main	thread and must	be the thread that calls MPI_Finalize .

NOTES
       The MPI standard	does not say what a program can	do before an  MPI_INIT
       or  after an MPI_FINALIZE .  In the MPICH implementation, you should do
       as little as possible.  In particular, avoid anything that changes  the
       external	 state of the program, such as opening files, reading standard
       input or	writing	to standard output.

NOTES FOR FORTRAN
       The Fortran binding for MPI_Init	has only the error return
       subroutine MPI_INIT( ierr )
       integer ierr

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.
       MPI_ERR_OTHER
	      -	 This  error class is associated with an error code that indi-
	      cates that an attempt was	made to	call MPI_INIT a	 second	 time.
	      MPI_INIT may only	be called once in a program.
