Subject: [OMPI devel] Wrong documentation for MPI_Comm_size manual page
From: Number Cruncher (number.cruncher_at_[hidden])

I'm working on some intercommunicator stuff at the moment. According to
MPI-2.2 standard:
"An inter-communication is a point-to-point communication between
processes in different groups" [Section 6.6]

yet the "man" page for MPI_Comm_size reads:
"If the communicator is an **intra-communicator** (enables
communication between two groups), this function returns the size of
the local group"

Shouldn't that be **inter-communicator**?

Thanks,
Simon
