Subject: [OMPI users] error when sending a single 'long double' from an amd64 architecture to a ppc and a sparc machine
From: Patrick Heckeler (pheckeler_at_[hidden])

Hi everybody,

I tried to submit a single 'long double' from an amd64 architecture to
a ppc, from an amd64 to a sparc machine and from ppc to sparc. The
testprogram and the results are shown below. All other basic datatypes
I have tested are working fine with heterogenous communication. Does
anybody have an idea? I am using openMPI 1.2.4.

Testprogramm:
#include <mpi.h>
#include <iostream>

int main(int argc, char *argv[])
{
  int me, numprocs;
  long double senddata = 3.14;
  long double recvdata;
  MPI_Status status;
  MPI_Init(&argc, &argv);

  MPI_Comm_size(MPI_COMM_WORLD, &numprocs);
  MPI_Comm_rank(MPI_COMM_WORLD, &me);

  if(me==0)
  {
    std::cout << "Long double to send: " << senddata << std::endl;
    MPI_Send(&senddata, 1, MPI_LONG_DOUBLE, 1, 123, MPI_COMM_WORLD);
  }
  else
  {
    MPI_Recv(&recvdata, 1, MPI_LONG_DOUBLE, 0, 123, MPI_COMM_WORLD, &status);
    std::cout << "Long double received: " << recvdata << std::endl;
  }
  MPI_Finalize();
}
