Does MPI_COMM_WORLD exist in any sense before MPI_Init is called? In particular, does this code violate the standard?
InitializeMyApp(MPI_Comm comm, int argc, char **argv)
if (!initialized) MPI_Init(&argc, &argv);
/* call some function that uses comm */
int main(int argc, char **argv)
MPI_Comm comm = MPI_COMM_WORLD;
InitializeMyApp(comm, argc, argv);
My instinct is that this is wrong, but I would like to be sure before I complain about it. It appears to work with some existing implementations, but it looks sketchy to me.
