NAME

       MPI_Errhandler_set   - Sets the error handler for a communicator -- use of this routine is
       deprecated.

SYNTAX

C Syntax

       #include <mpi.h>
       int MPI_Errhandler_set(MPI_Comm comm, MPI_Errhandler errhandler)

Fortran Syntax

       INCLUDE 'mpif.h'
       MPI_ERRHANDLER_SET(COMM, ERRHANDLER, IERROR)
            INTEGER   COMM, ERRHANDLER, IERROR

INPUT PARAMETERS

       comm      Communicator to set the error handler for (handle).

       errhandler
                 New MPI error handler for communicator (handle).

OUTPUT PARAMETER

       IERROR    Fortran only: Error status (integer).

DESCRIPTION

       Note  that   use   of   this   routine   is   deprecated   as   of   MPI-2.   Please   use
       MPI_Comm_set_errhandler instead.

       This deprecated routine is not available in C++.

       Associates the new error handler errhandler with communicator comm at the calling process.
       Note that an error handler is always associated with the communicator.

ERRORS

       Almost all MPI routines return an error value; C routines as the value of the function and
       Fortran  routines in the last argument. C++ functions do not return errors. If the default
       error handler is set to MPI::ERRORS_THROW_EXCEPTIONS, then  on  error  the  C++  exception
       mechanism will be used to throw an MPI::Exception object.

       Before  the  error value is returned, the current MPI error handler is called. By default,
       this error handler aborts the MPI job, except for I/O function errors. The  error  handler
       may    be   changed   with   MPI_Comm_set_errhandler;   the   predefined   error   handler
       MPI_ERRORS_RETURN may be used to cause error values to be returned. Note that MPI does not
       guarantee that an MPI program can continue past an error.
