Reduction with MINLOC and MAXLOC

The reduction operations MINLOC and MAXLOC differ from all others: they return two results, the minimum resp. maximum of the values in the different tasks and the rank of a task, which holds the extreme value. mpi4py provides the two operations only for the lower case reduce and allreduce mehods for comparing a single numerical data object in every task. An example is given in

reduce_minloc.py:

inp = numpy.random.rand(size)
senddata = inp[rank]
recvdata=comm.reduce(senddata,None,root=0,op=MPI.MINLOC)
print 'on task',rank,'reduce:    ',senddata,recvdata 

recvdata=comm.allreduce(senddata,None,op=MPI.MINLOC)
print 'on task',rank,'allreduce: ',senddata,recvdata
