Description : bindings of the Message Passing Interface (MPI) standard
MPI for Python (mpi4py) provides bindings of the Message Passing Interface
(MPI) standard for the Python programming language, allowing any Python program
to exploit multiple processors.
This package is constructed on top of the MPI-1/MPI-2 specification and
provides an object oriented interface which closely follows MPI-2 C++ bindings.
It supports point-to-point (sends, receives) and collective (broadcasts,
scatters, gathers) communications of any picklable Python object as well as
optimized communications of Python object exposing the single-segment buffer
interface (NumPy arrays, builtin bytes/string/array objects).
Packaging mpi4py as a prerequisite for PyNN (ITP #604159).
Also, a copy of mpi4py (1.0.0) seems to be a part of paraview.
