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

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

USE MPI
! or the older form: 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

USE mpi_f08
MPI_Type_set_attr(datatype, type_keyval, attribute_val, ierror)
	TYPE(MPI_Datatype), INTENT(IN) :: datatype
	INTEGER, INTENT(IN) :: type_keyval
	INTEGER(KIND=MPI_ADDRESS_KIND), INTENT(IN) :: attribute_val
	INTEGER, OPTIONAL, INTENT(OUT) :: ierror

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

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

Key value (integer).
Attribute value.

Fortran only: Error status (integer).

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

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.

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.
