NAME

pvm_bufinfo() - Returns information about a message buffer.

 

SYNOPSIS

C       int info = pvm_bufinfo( int bufid, int *bytes, int *msgtag,
int *tid )

Fortran call pvmfbufinfo( bufid, bytes, msgtag, tid, info )

 

PARAMETERS

bufid
Integer specifying a particular message buffer identifier.
bytes
Integer returning the length in bytes of the body of the message. This will be equal to the actual size of the data packed, if PvmDataRaw is used, otherwise it may include pad bytes.
msgtag
Integer returning the message label. Useful when the message was received with a wildcard msgtag.
tid
Integer returning the source of the message. Useful when the message was received with a wildcard tid.
info
Integer status code returned by the routine. Values less than zero indicate an error.

 

DESCRIPTION

The routine pvm_bufinfo returns information about the requested message buffer. Typically it is used to determine facts about the last received message such as its size or source. pvm_bufinfo is especially useful when an application is able to receive any incoming message, and the action taken depends on the source tid and the msgtag associated with the message that comes in first. If pvm_bufinfo is successful, info will be 0. If some error occurs then info will be < 0.

 

EXAMPLES

C:
        bufid = pvm_recv( -1, -1 );
        info = pvm_bufinfo( bufid, &bytes, &type, &source );

Fortran:
        CALL PVMFRECV( -1, -1, BUFID )
        CALL PVMFBUFINFO( BUFID, BYTES, TYPE, SOURCE, INFO )

 

ERRORS

This error condition can be returned by pvm_bufinfo.
