int c_mpipar (int iain)

Description

IAIN
is an input expression of type INTEGER, specifying the area identifier of a particular area of interest.

C-Binding Description

Usage

The statement "IPAR=MPIPAR(IAIN)" retrieves in IPAR the area identifier of the parent of the area with area identifier IAIN. For example, if IMAD is the area identifier of the little island in Lake Superior called "Lake Madeline", then MPIPAR(IMAD) is the area identifier of the area called "Wisconsin".

Examples

Use the ncargex command to see the following relevant example: mpex12.
