Frees a communication request object
int MPI_Request_free( request )
- communication request (handle)
This routine is normally used to free persistent requests created
witheither MPI_Recv_init or MPI_Send_init and friends. However, it can
beused to free a request created with MPI_Irecv or MPI_Isend and friends;
in that case the use can not use the test/wait routines on the request.
It is permitted to free an active request. However, once freed, you can
notuse the request in a wait or test routine (e.g., MPI_Wait).
Notes for Fortran
All MPI routines in Fortran (except for MPI_WTIME and MPI_WTICK)
havean additional argument ierr at the end of the argument list.
ierris an integer and has the same meaning as the return value of the
routinein C. In Fortran, MPI routines are subroutines, and are invoked with
All MPI objects (e.g., MPI_Datatype, MPI_Comm) are of type
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
lastargument. Before the value is returned, the current MPI error handler
iscalled. By default, this error handler aborts the MPI job. The error
handlermay be changed with MPI_Errhandler_set; the predefined error
handlerMPI_ERRORS_RETURN may be used to cause error values to be returned.
Note that MPI does not guarentee that an MPI program can continue
- No error; MPI routine completed successfully.
- Invalid MPI_Request. Either null or, in the case of a
MPI_Start or MPI_Startall, not a persistent request.
- Invalid argument. Some argument is invalid and is not
identified by a specific error class (e.g., MPI_ERR_RANK).
