       XMPI_Coloron -  LAM/MPI-specific function to enable a color in the XMPI trace stream.


       #include <mpi.h>
       XMPI_Coloron(int red, int green, int blue)


       red    - red value (integer)
       green  - green value (integer)
       blue   - blue value (integer)


       The  LAM  implementation  of  MPI  is  integrated  with the XMPI run/debug viewer.  It can
       generate tracefiles and on-the-fly trace streams suitable for display in XMPI.

       A new functionality in XMPI is the ability to enable and  disable  select  colors  in  the
       trace  stream.   LAM/MPI allows this functionality with the XMPI_Coloron and XMPI_Coloroff

       XMPI_Coloron is called with red , green , and blue parameters.  Each value may be  from  0
       to  255.  The resulting RGB composite will become activated for that rank at that point in
       time.  Enabling and disabling colors is a local action; the calls will return immediately.
       The  color will be activated or deactivated on the timeline corresponding to the rank that
       invoked XMPI_Coloron / XMPI_Colorff in the XMPI trace window.

       Only one color is active at a time.  However, XMPI_Coloron may be invoked  multiple  times
       to  build a stack of colors.  XMPI_Coloroff will pop the last color off the stack and make
       the previous color active.

       If this function is invoked and tracing is not active, the color is ignored.

       There is no profiling version of this function.

       This is a LAM/MPI-specific function and is intended mainly for use  with  XMPI.   If  this
       function is used, it should be used in conjunction with the LAM_MPI C preprocessor macro

       #if LAM_MPI
       XMPI_Coloron(255, 255, 0);


       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.


       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.
              - No error; MPI routine completed successfully.
              -  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.
              - An internal error has been detected.  This is fatal.  Please send a bug report to
              the LAM mailing list (see ).
