thanks for the programm, but sadly I can't get it work :(.
It's the same error as in my programm. I get the following output:

Which as far as I know can't be correct. It's the same problem that I
had in my programm. The process with the rank 0 has the right data in
it's array, all the others only 0.

No, I had a MPI_Finalize only cutted it away when I was pasting the
programm. And I also understand that ther can't be the same output but
only 0 is a little bit confusing for me.

I would send you a pizza haway with a floppy but I fear that it will be
cold until it gets to you ;).
