# 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 * *
