NOTES
This function is deprecated. It has been replaced with an MPI-2 function (see the "See also" section, below), which provides the same functionality. This function is (or effectively is) a wrapper to the replacement function, anyway. User programs should use the MPI-2 replacement function instead of this function. Some functions are deprecated because their names did not conform to the stricter naming conventions of MPI-2; others are deprecated because they have been replaced with more flexible functionality.
