Subject: Re: [OMPI users] opening a file with MPI-IO
From: Edgar Gabriel (gabriel_at_[hidden])

wow, lets try again in english :-)

can you maybe detail more precisely what scenario you are particularly
worried about? I would think that the return code of the operation
is reliable on whether opening the file was successful or not (i.e.
MPI_SUCCESS vs. anything else).
