NAME

       MPI_Alloc_mem -  Allocate memory for message passing and RMA

SYNOPSIS

       int MPI_Alloc_mem(MPI_Aint size, MPI_Info info, void *baseptr)

INPUT PARAMETERS

       size   - size of memory segment in bytes (nonnegative integer)
       info   - info argument (handle)

OUTPUT PARAMETERS

       baseptr
              - pointer to beginning of memory segment allocated

NOTES

       Using this routine from Fortran requires that the Fortran compiler accept a common pointer
       extension.   See  Section  4.11  (Memory  Allocation)  in  the  MPI-2  standard  for  more
       information and examples.

       Also  note  that  while  baseptr is a void * type, this is simply to allow easy use of any
       pointer object for this parameter.  In fact, this argument is really a void ** type,  that
       is, a pointer to a pointer.

THREAD AND INTERRUPT SAFETY

       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.

NOTES FOR FORTRAN

       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.

ERRORS

       All  MPI  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.

       MPI_SUCCESS
              - No error; MPI routine completed successfully.
       MPI_ERR_INFO
              - Invalid Info
       MPI_ERR_ARG
              -  Invalid  argument.  Some argument is invalid and is not identified by a specific
              error class (e.g., MPI_ERR_RANK ).
       MPI_ERR_NO_MEM
              - Insufficient memory available for allocation by MPI_Alloc_mem
