NAME

MPI_Comm_delete_attr - Deletes attribute value associated with a key.

 

SYNTAX

 

C Syntax

#include <mpi.h>
int MPI_Comm_delete_attr(MPI_Comm comm, int comm_keyval)

 

Fortran Syntax

INCLUDE 'mpif.h'
MPI_Comm_delete_attr(COMM, COMM_KEYVAL, IERROR)
        INTEGER COMM, COMM_KEYVAL, IERROR 

 

C++ Syntax

#include <mpi.h>
void MPI::Comm::Delete_attr(int comm_keyval)

 

INPUT/OUTPUT PARAMETER

comm
Communicator from which the attribute is deleted (handle).

 

INPUT PARAMETER

comm_keyval
Key value (integer).

 

OUTPUT PARAMETER

IERROR
Fortran only: Error status (integer).

 

DESCRIPTION

MPI_Comm_delete_attr deletes an attribute from cache by key. This function invokes the attribute delete function delete_fn specified when the comm_keyval was created. The call will fail if the delete_fn function returns an error code other than MPI_SUCCESS.

Whenever a communicator is replicated using the function MPI_Comm_dup, all callback copy functions for attributes that are currently set are invoked (in arbitrary order). Whenever a communicator is deleted using the function MPI_Comm_free, all callback delete functions for attributes that are currently set are invoked.

This function is the same as MPI_Attr_delete but is needed to match the communicator-specific functions introduced in the MPI-2 standard. The use of MPI_Attr_delete is deprecated.

 

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.
