MPI_Keyval_free(3OpenMPI)												 MPI_Keyval_free(3OpenMPI)

NAME
MPI_Keyval_free - Frees attribute key for communicator cache attribute -- use of this routine is deprecated. SYNTAX
C Syntax #include <mpi.h> int MPI_Keyval_free(int *keyval) Fortran Syntax INCLUDE 'mpif.h' MPI_KEYVAL_FREE(KEYVAL, IERROR) INTEGER KEYVAL, IERROR INPUT PARAMETER
keyval Frees the integer key value (integer). OUTPUT PARAMETER
IERROR Fortran only: Error status (integer). DESCRIPTION
Note that use of this routine is deprecated as of MPI-2. Please use MPI_Comm_free_keyval instead. This deprecated routine is not available in C++. Frees an extant attribute key. This function sets the value of keyval to MPI_KEYVAL_INVALID. Note that it is not erroneous to free an attribute key that is in use, because the actual free does not transpire until after all references (in other communicators on the process) to the key have been freed. These references need to be explictly freed by the program, either via calls to MPI_Attr_delete that free one attribute instance, or by calls to MPI_Comm_free that free all attribute instances associated with the freed communicator. NOTE
Key values are global (they can be used with any and all communicators). 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++ func- tions 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. SEE ALSO

NAME
MPI_Errhandler_set - Sets the error handler for a communicator -- use of this routine is deprecated. SYNTAX
C Syntax #include <mpi.h> int MPI_Errhandler_set(MPI_Comm comm, MPI_Errhandler errhandler) Fortran Syntax INCLUDE 'mpif.h' MPI_ERRHANDLER_SET(COMM, ERRHANDLER, IERROR) INTEGER COMM, ERRHANDLER, IERROR INPUT PARAMETERS
comm Communicator to set the error handler for (handle). errhandler New MPI error handler for communicator (handle). OUTPUT PARAMETER
IERROR Fortran only: Error status (integer). DESCRIPTION
Note that use of this routine is deprecated as of MPI-2. Please use MPI_Comm_set_errhandler instead. This deprecated routine is not available in C++. Associates the new error handler errhandler with communicator comm at the calling process. Note that an error handler is always associated with the communicator. ERRORS
