Hello MPI Users,

    I am completely new to MPI. I have a basic question concerning MPI and mixed language coding. I hope any of you could help me out. Is it possible to access FORTRAN common blocks in C++ in a MPI compiled code. It works without MPI but as soon I switch to MPI the access of common block does not work anymore.

I have a Linux MPI executable which loads a shared library at runtime and resolves all undefined symbols etc  The shared library is written in C++ and the MPI executable in written in FORTRAN. Some of the input that the shared library looking for are in the Fortran common blocks. As I access those common blocks during runtime the values are not  initialized.  I would like to know if what I am doing is possible ?I hope that my problem is clear…………..

  Your valuable suggestions are welcome !!!


Thank you,
