Hi Albert,

Sorry, but "has two int array inside it like" isn't very precise. Do
you mean:

class Box {
      int a[3];
      int b[3];

or might you also mean:

class Box {
      int a[3];
      Foo aLotOf;
      Bar otherStuff;
      int b[3];


Anyways, your MPI_Datatype construction doesn't seem to be right:

> MPI_Type_contiguous(9, MPI_INT, &MPI_box);

Fist of all, you should be using MPI_Type_create_struct for C++
classes in order to ensure that each member is addressed with its
correct offset (b/c of compiler memory layout/alignment). And second
you said that myclass/Box or whatever is build from two int[3], but in
the code above you register 9 ints.

Again, we can't help you if you don't provide us with self-sufficient
code; small excerpts mixed with comments won't cut it in most cases.
