#include <mpi.h>
static MPI::Datatype MPI::Match_size(int typeclass, int size)

Generic type specifier (integer).
Size, in bytes, of representation (integer).

Datatype with correct type and size (handle).
Fortran only: Error status (integer).

The function returns an MPI datatype matching a local variable of type (typeclass, size). The returned type is a reference (handle) to a predefined named datatype, not a duplicate. This type cannot be freed.

The value of typeclass may be set to one of MPI_TYPECLASS_REAL, MPI_TYPECLASS_INTEGER, or MPI_TYPECLASS_COMPLEX, corresponding to the desired datatype.

MPI_type_match_size can be used to obtain a size-specific type that matches a Fortran numeric intrinsic type: first call MPI_Sizeof to compute the variable size, then call MPI_Type_match_size to find a suitable datatype. In C and C++, use the sizeof builtin instead of MPI_Sizeof.

It is erroneous to specify a size not supported by the compiler.

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.

See the MPI man page for a full list of MPI error codes.
