# Description

**HPL_pdpanel_new**creates and initializes a panel data structure.

# Arguments

GRID (local input) HPL_T_grid * On entry, GRID points to the data structure containing the process grid information.

ALGO (global input) HPL_T_palg * On entry, ALGO points to the data structure containing the algorithmic parameters.

M (local input) const int On entry, M specifies the global number of rows of the panel. M must be at least zero.

N (local input) const int On entry, N specifies the global number of columns of the panel and trailing submatrix. N must be at least zero.

JB (global input) const int On entry, JB specifies is the number of columns of the panel. JB must be at least zero.

A (local input/output) HPL_T_pmat * On entry, A points to the data structure containing the local array information.

IA (global input) const int On entry, IA is the global row index identifying the panel and trailing submatrix. IA must be at least zero.

JA (global input) const int On entry, JA is the global column index identifying the panel and trailing submatrix. JA must be at least zero.

TAG (global input) const int On entry, TAG is the row broadcast message id.

PANEL (local input/output) HPL_T_panel * * On entry, PANEL points to the address of the panel data structure to create and initialize.
