NAME

       MPI_Error_string -  Return a string for a given error code

SYNOPSIS

       #include <mpi.h>
       int MPI_Error_string(int errcode, char *msg,
                           int *plen)

INPUT PARAMETERS

       errcode
              - Error code returned by an MPI routine or an MPI error class

OUTPUT PARAMETER

       msg    - Text that corresponds to the errorcode
       plen   - Length of string

NOTES

       Error  codes  are  the  values  return  by MPI routines (in C) or in the ierr argument (in
       Fortran).  These can be converted into error classes with the routine MPI_Error_class .

       These messages are provided in English (En_US - English/United States).  If  there  is  an
       interest  in  providing messages in different languages, please submit requests to the LAM
       mailing list (see http://www.lam-mpi.org/contact.php ).

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.

MORE INFORMATION

       For  more information, please see the official MPI Forum web site, which contains the text
       of both the MPI-1 and MPI-2 standards.  These documents contain detailed information about
       each MPI function (most of which is not duplicated in these man pages).

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

       The  LAM  Team  would  like the thank the MPICH Team for the handy program to generate man
       pages  ("doctext"  from  ftp://ftp.mcs.anl.gov/pub/sowing/sowing.tar.gz  ),  the   initial
       formatting, and some initial text for most of the MPI-1 man pages.
