Thank you very much, Shaun! Ok, now I realise it's really stupid that
I was trying so hard to get the result that I wanted :-)
Well, it seems it's not a problem if I'm just reading with
MPI_File_read and writing with MPI_File_write, but if I try to do some
calculations with the data I read, it doesn't work... Do you maybe
have some idea how one can deal with this ( I have an input file for
my project - much larger code than the sample I gave last time -
consisting of integers, doubles, characters and so on... Maybe it's a
silly question, but can I convert my input file somehow into something
so that it works? :-) Any ideas would help.
Thanks again.
