NAME

       MPI_Type_set_attr - Sets a key value/attribute pair to a data type.

SYNTAX

C Syntax

       #include <mpi.h>
       int MPI_Type_set_attr(MPI_Datatype type, int type_keyval,
            void *attribute_val)

Fortran Syntax (see FORTRAN 77 NOTES)

       INCLUDE 'mpif.h'
       MPI_TYPE_SET_ATTR(TYPE, TYPE_KEYVAL, ATTRIBUTE_VAL, IERROR)
            INTEGER   TYPE, TYPE_KEYVAL, IERROR
            INTEGER(KIND=MPI_ADDRESS_KIND) ATTRIBUTE_VAL

C++ Syntax

       #include <mpi.h>
       void MPI::Datatype::Set_attr(int type_keyval, const void* attribute_val)

INPUT/OUTPUT PARAMETER

       type      Data type to which attribute will be attached (handle).

INPUT PARAMETERS

       type_keyval
                 Key value (integer).

       attribute_val
                 Attribute value.

OUTPUT PARAMETER

       IERROR    Fortran only: Error status (integer).

DESCRIPTION

       For  the  given  data  type,  MPI_Type_set_attr  sets  the  key  value to the value of the
       specified attribute.

FORTRAN 77 NOTES

       The MPI standard prescribes portable Fortran syntax for the  ATTRIBUTE_VAL  argument  only
       for Fortran 90. FORTRAN 77 users may use the non-portable syntax

            INTEGER*MPI_ADDRESS_KIND ATTRIBUTE_VAL

       where  MPI_ADDRESS_KIND  is  a  constant  defined  in  mpif.h  and gives the length of the
       declared integer in bytes.

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.
