MPI_Win_create_keyval − Create an attribute keyval for MPI window objects
int *win_keyval, void *extra_state)
- copy callback function for win_keyval (function)
- delete callback function for win_keyval (function)
- extra state for callback functions
- key value for future access (integer)
and delete functions are available. These are
- empty copy function
- empty delete function
- simple dup function
The MPI-2 versions of the attribute callbacks should return either MPI_SUCCESS on success or a valid MPI error code or class on failure. The MPI standard is ambiguous on this point, but as MPI-2 provides the routines MPI_Add_error_class and MPI_Add_error_code that allow the user to define and use MPI error codes and classes.
This routine is thread-safe. This means that this routine may be safely used by multiple threads without the need for any user-provided thread locks. However, the routine is not interrupt safe. Typically, this is due to the use of memory allocation routines such as malloc or other non-MPICH runtime routines that are themselves not interrupt-safe.
All MPI routines in Fortran (except for MPI_WTIME and MPI_WTICK ) have an additional argument ierr at the end of the argument list. ierr is an integer and has the same meaning as the return value of the routine in C. In Fortran, MPI routines are subroutines, and are invoked with the call statement.
All MPI objects (e.g., MPI_Datatype , MPI_Comm ) are of type INTEGER in Fortran.
routines (except MPI_Wtime and MPI_Wtick )
return an error value; C routines as the value of the
function and Fortran routines in the last argument. Before
the value is returned, the current MPI error handler is
called. By default, this error handler aborts the MPI job.
The error handler may be changed with
MPI_Comm_set_errhandler (for communicators),
MPI_File_set_errhandler (for files), and
MPI_Win_set_errhandler (for RMA windows). The MPI-1
routine MPI_Errhandler_set may be used but its use is
deprecated. The predefined error handler
MPI_ERRORS_RETURN may be used to cause error values
to be returned. Note that MPI does not guarentee that
an MPI program can continue past an error; however, MPI
implementations will attempt to continue whenever possible.
- No error; MPI routine completed successfully.
- Invalid argument. Some argument is invalid and is not identified by a specific error class (e.g., MPI_ERR_RANK ).
- Other error; use MPI_Error_string to get more information about this error code.
