Rank

Command: Rank


Synopsis
Rank -> int
Description

Returns the rank of the MPI process (MPI_Comm_rank) executing the
command. This function is mainly meant for logging and debugging
purposes. It is highly discouraged to use this function to write
rank-dependent code in a simulation script as this can break NEST
in funny ways of which dead-locks are the nicest.
