MPI_Attr_put(3)                       MPI                      MPI_Attr_put(3)



NAME
       MPI_Attr_put -  Stores attribute value associated with a key

SYNOPSIS
       int MPI_Attr_put(MPI_Comm comm, int keyval, void *attribute_val)

INPUT PARAMETERS
       comm   - communicator to which attribute will be attached (handle)
       keyval - key value, as returned by MPI_KEYVAL_CREATE (integer)
       attribute_val
              - attribute value


NOTES
       Values of the permanent attributes MPI_TAG_UB , MPI_HOST , MPI_IO ,
       MPI_WTIME_IS_GLOBAL , MPI_UNIVERSE_SIZE , MPI_LASTUSEDCODE , and
       MPI_APPNUM may not be changed.

       The type of the attribute value depends on whether C, C++, or Fortran
       is being used.  In C and C++, an attribute value is a pointer ( void *
       ); in Fortran, it is a single integer ( not a pointer, since Fortran
       has no pointers and there are systems for which a pointer does not fit
       in an integer (e.g., any > 32 bit address system that uses 64 bits for
       Fortran DOUBLE PRECISION ).

       If an attribute is already present, the delete function (specified when
       the corresponding keyval was created) will be called.


THREAD AND INTERRUPT SAFETY
       This routine is thread-safe.  This means that this routine may be
       safely used by multiple threads without the need for any user-provided
       thread locks.  However, the routine is not interrupt safe.  Typically,
       this is due to the use of memory allocation routines such as malloc or
       other non-MPICH runtime routines that are themselves not interrupt-
       safe.


DEPRECATED FUNCTION
       The MPI-2 standard deprecated a number of routines because MPI-2
       provides better versions.  This routine is one of those that was
       deprecated.  The routine may continue to be used, but new code should
       use the replacement routine.  The replacement for this routine is
       MPI_Comm_set_attr .



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.


ERRORS
       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.  Before the value is returned, the current MPI error
       handler is called.  By default, this error handler aborts the MPI job.
       The error handler may be changed with MPI_Comm_set_errhandler (for
       communicators), MPI_File_set_errhandler (for files), and
       MPI_Win_set_errhandler (for RMA windows).  The MPI-1 routine
       MPI_Errhandler_set may be used but its use is deprecated.  The
       predefined error handler MPI_ERRORS_RETURN may be used to cause error
       values to be returned.  Note that MPI does not guarentee that an MPI
       program can continue past an error; however, MPI implementations will
       attempt to continue whenever possible.

       MPI_SUCCESS
              - No error; MPI routine completed successfully.
       MPI_ERR_COMM
              - Invalid communicator.  A common error is to use a null
              communicator in a call (not even allowed in MPI_Comm_rank ).
       MPI_ERR_KEYVAL
              - Invalid keyval
       MPI_ERR_ARG
              - This error class is associated with an error code that
              indicates that an attempt was made to free one of the permanent
              keys.
