NAME

       MPI_Comm_get_attr -  Get communicator attribute value

SYNOPSIS

       #include <mpi.h>
       int
       MPI_Comm_get_attr(MPI_Comm comm, int key, void *value, int *found)

INPUT PARAMETERS

       comm   - Communicator to which attribute is attached
       key    - key value

OUTPUT PARAMETERS

       value  - attribute value, unless found = false
       found  - false if no attribute is associated with the key

USAGE WITH IMPI EXTENSIONS

       The  IMPI  standard  only supports MPI-1 functions.  Hence, this function is currently not
       designed to operate within an IMPI job.

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

       If  an  error occurs in an MPI function, the current MPI error handler is called to handle
       it.  By default, this error handler aborts the MPI job.  The error handler may be  changed
       with  MPI_Errhandler_set  ;  the predefined error handler MPI_ERRORS_RETURN may be used to
       cause error values to be returned (in C and Fortran; this error handler is less useful  in
       with  the  C++  MPI  bindings.   The predefined error handler MPI::ERRORS_THROW_EXCEPTIONS
       should be used in C++ if the error value needs to be recovered).  Note that MPI  does  not
       guarantee that an MPI program can continue past an error.

       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.  The C++ bindings for
       MPI  do  not  return  error  values;  instead,  error  values are communicated by throwing
       exceptions of type MPI::Exception (but not by default).  Exceptions are only thrown if the
       error value is not MPI::SUCCESS .

       Note that if the MPI::ERRORS_RETURN handler is set in C++, while MPI functions will return
       upon an error, there will be no way to recover what the actual error value was.
       MPI_SUCCESS
              - No error; MPI routine completed successfully.
       MPI_ERR_COMM
              - Invalid communicator.  A common error is to use a null  communicator  in  a  call
              (not even allowed in MPI_Comm_rank ).
       MPI_ERR_OTHER
              -  Other  error;  the error code associated with this error indicates an attempt to
              use an invalue keyval.
       MPI_ERR_ARG
              - Invalid argument.  Some argument is invalid and is not identified by  a  specific
              error class.  This is typically a NULL pointer or other such error.
