Rank


Name:
Rank - Return the MPI rank of the process.
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.
