NAME

MPI_Attr_get - Retrieves attribute value by key -- use of this routine is deprecated.

 

SYNTAX

 

C Syntax

#include <mpi.h>
int MPI_Attr_get(MPI_Comm comm, int keyval,void *attribute_val,
        int *flag )

 

Fortran Syntax

INCLUDE 'mpif.h'
MPI_ATTR_GET(COMM, KEYVAL, ATTRIBUTE_VAL, FLAG, IERROR)
        INTEGER COMM, KEYVAL, ATTRIBUTE_VAL, IERROR
        LOGICAL FLAG


 

INPUT PARAMETERS

comm
Communicator to which attribute is attached (handle).
keyval

 Key value (integer).

 

OUTPUT PARAMETERS

attribute_val
Attribute value, unless flag = false.
flag
True if an attribute value was extracted; false if no attribute is associated with the key.
IERROR
Fortran only: Error status (integer).

 

DESCRIPTION

Note that use of this routine is deprecated as of MPI-2. Please use MPI_Comm_get_attr instead.

This deprecated routine is not available in C++.

Retrieves attribute value by key. The call is erroneous if there is no key with value keyval. On the other hand, the call is correct if the key value exists, but no attribute is attached on comm for that key; in such case, the call returns flag = false. In particular MPI_KEYVAL_INVALID is an erroneous key value.

 

ERRORS

Almost all MPI routines return an error value; C routines as the value of the function and Fortran routines in the last argument. C++ functions do not return errors. If the default error handler is set to MPI::ERRORS_THROW_EXCEPTIONS, then on error the C++ exception mechanism will be used to throw an MPI:Exception object.

Before the error value is returned, the current MPI error handler is called. By default, this error handler aborts the MPI job, except for I/O function errors. The error handler may be changed with MPI_Comm_set_errhandler; the predefined error handler MPI_ERRORS_RETURN may be used to cause error values to be returned. Note that MPI does not guarantee that an MPI program can continue past an error.
