For many applications, a very few routines are all the MPI that
is needed. The basic idea of these routines is to make
a local version of global files. These files are transfered
to and from the master process through some simple routines.
These routines can be broken into three categories:
initialization, distribution, and collection.
All of the routines are written in C with a Fortran interface (e.g.
floats become reals, ints become integers).
