       pvm_insert - store data in pvmd database
       [In Version 3.4: Relaced by pvm_putinfo]


       C    int cc = pvm_insert( char *name, int index, int data )

       Fortran   Not available


       name    The class name, a null-terminated string.

       index   The class index, >= 0 or -1 for first available.

       data    Data to store in the <name, index> entry.


       The  master  pvmd  maintains  a simple database, which can be used to store values such as
       tids and make them accessible anywhere within a virtual  machine.   This  is  useful  when
       building  an  application  such  as  the group server, which must advertise its task id so
       clients can register send messages to register.

       The database stores integer data, indexed by <name, index> pairs.  The  name  may  be  any
       null-terminated  string  and  the  index  any  non-negative integer.  Database entries are
       grouped by name into classes; index may be specified as -1 to store or retrieve the  first
       available instance in a class.

       These  functions  are not part of the group library, but are the underlying mechanism used
       to implement it.

       pvm_insert stores data at the given index.  If index is -1, the  data  is  stored  at  the
       first available index in the named class, starting at 0.


       If  successful,  pvm_insert  returns  the index at which the data was stored, otherwise it
       returns a negative result.  The following error conditions can be returned:

              giving an invalid argument value.

              the requested <name, index> pair is already in use.
