mpiifx: use_f08 lacks support of integer(8)

Dear, 

I have written the following code for testing MPI ILP64 mode:

 

program main
  use mpi_f08
  implicit none
  integer, parameter :: is = 8
  integer(is) :: ierror
  call mpi_init(ierror)
  call mpi_finalize(ierror)
end program main

 

 Then, I tried to compile it as follows:

 

$ mpiifx test_mpi_ILP64.f90 -ilp64

 

And I got the following errors:

test_mpi_ILP64.f90(6): error #6285: There is no matching specific subroutine for this generic subroutine call.   [MPI_INIT]
  call mpi_init(ierror)
-------^
test_mpi_ILP64.f90(7): error #6285: There is no matching specific subroutine for this generic subroutine call.   [MPI_FINALIZE]
  call mpi_finalize(ierror)
-------^
compilation aborted for test_mpi_ILP64.f90 (code 1)

When I replace `use mpi_f08` with `use mpi` the compilation is success. Also, replacement `is = 8` with `is = 4` has the same behaviour.

How can I use mpi_f08 with ILP64 mode?

I'm using the following ifx from the corresponding oneAPI (so, the resulting binaries looks ok, when they are compiled):

$ ifx --version
ifx (IFX) 2023.2.0 20230622

I checked paths and noticed that mpi_f08.mod is presented only in `intel/oneapi/mpi/2021.10.0/include`, but not in `intel/oneapi/mpi/2021.10.0//include/ilp64` while mpi.mod is presented in both directories.

The same problem is for mpif.h, which is presented only for LP64 mode.

I did not bother to find the MPI standard document, but OpenMPI has good API documentation:

https://www.open-mpi.org/doc/v3.1/man3/MPI_Init.3.php

The 'ierror' argument is optional with MPI_f08, but when it is present, it must be of default kind (int32). In your example it is not and the compiler rightfully rejects it.

Dear hakostra,

MPI standard (for example 3.1: https://www.mpi-forum.org/docs/mpi-3.1/mpi31-report.pdf) does not say anything about integer size in API except several modern routines, so, when one compiles MPI application with -i8 flag, one expects that the whole application will use ILP64 mode (in the case of x86_64).

Moreover, the large data (>2Gb for MPI_BYTE) can be send at one time only using ILP64 mode. That is why I would like to know how can I use mpi_f08 with ILP64 mode

mpi_f08 throws an error, should it?

Dear John,

Yep,  mpi_f08 throws an error while mpi does not.
