MPI_Intercomm_merge(3)			     LAM/MPI			   MPI_Intercomm_merge(3)

NAME
       MPI_Intercomm_merge -  Creates an intracommuncator from an intercommunicator

SYNOPSIS
       #include <mpi.h>
       int MPI_Intercomm_merge(MPI_Comm comm, int high,
	  MPI_Comm *newcomm)

INPUT PARAMETERS
       comm   - Intercommunicator
       high   -  Used to order the groups of the two intracommunicators within comm when creating
	      the new communicator.

OUTPUT PARAMETER
       newcomm
	      - Created intracommunicator

NOTES FOR FORTRAN
       All MPI routines in Fortran (except for MPI_WTIME and MPI_WTICK ) have an additional argu-
       ment 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
       If  an  error occurs in an MPI function, the current MPI error handler is called to handle
       it.  By default, this error handler aborts the MPI job.	The error handler may be  changed
       with  MPI_Errhandler_set  ;  the predefined error handler MPI_ERRORS_RETURN may be used to
       cause error values to be returned (in C and Fortran; this error handler is less useful  in
       with  the  C++  MPI  bindings.	The predefined error handler MPI::ERRORS_THROW_EXCEPTIONS
       should be used in C++ if the error value needs to be recovered).  Note that MPI	does  not
       guarantee that an MPI program can continue past an error.

       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.  The C++ bindings for
       MPI  do not return error values; instead, error values are communicated by throwing excep-
       tions of type MPI::Exception (but not by default).  Exceptions  are  only  thrown  if  the
       error value is not MPI::SUCCESS
	.

       Note that if the MPI::ERRORS_RETURN handler is set in C++, while MPI functions will return
       upon an error, there will be no way to recover what the actual error value was.
       MPI_SUCCESS
	      - No error; MPI routine completed successfully.
       MPI_ERR_COMM
	      - Invalid communicator.  A common error is to use a null	communicator  in  a  call
	      (not even allowed in MPI_Comm_rank ).
       MPI_ERR_ARG
	      -  Invalid  argument.  Some argument is invalid and is not identified by a specific
	      error class.  This is typically a NULL pointer or other such error.
       MPI_ERR_OTHER
	      - This error is returned when some part of the LAM/MPI implementation is unable  to
	      acquire memory.

MORE INFORMATION
       For  more information, please see the official MPI Forum web site, which contains the text
       of both the MPI-1 and MPI-2 standards.  These documents contain detailed information about
       each MPI function (most of which is not duplicated in these man pages).

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS
       The  LAM  Team  would  like the thank the MPICH Team for the handy program to generate man
       pages ("doctext" from ftp://ftp.mcs.anl.gov/pub/sowing/sowing.tar.gz ), the  initial  for-
       matting, and some initial text for most of the MPI-1 man pages.
