NAME

MPI_Error_string - Returns a string for a given error code.

 

SYNTAX

 

C Syntax

#include <mpi.h>
int MPI_Error_string(int errorcode, char *string, int *resultlen)

 

Fortran Syntax

INCLUDE 'mpif.h'
MPI_ERROR_STRING(ERRORCODE, STRING, RESULTLEN, IERROR)
        INTEGER         ERRORCODE, RESULTLEN, IERROR
        CHARACTER*(*)   STRING 

 

C++ Syntax

#include <mpi.h>
void Get_error_string(int errorcode, char* name, int& resultlen)

 

INPUT PARAMETER

errorcode
Error code returned by an MPI routine or an MPI error class.

 

OUTPUT PARAMETERS

string
Text that corresponds to the errorcode.
resultlen
Length of string.
IERROR
Fortran only: Error status (integer).

 

DESCRIPTION

Returns the error string associated with an error code or class. The argument string must represent storage that is at least MPI_MAX_ERROR_STRING characters long.

The number of characters actually written is returned in the output argument, resultlen.

 

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.
