SYNTAX

C Syntax

#include <mpi.h>
int MPI_Type_dup(MPI_Datatype type, MPI_Datatype *newtype)

Fortran Syntax

INCLUDE ’mpif.h’
MPI_TYPE_DUP(TYPE, NEWTYPE, IERROR)
        INTEGER TYPE, NEWTYPE, IERROR 

C++ Syntax

#include <mpi.h>
MPI::Datatype MPI::Datatype::Dup() const

INPUT PARAMETER

type Data type (handle).

OUTPUT PARAMETERS

newtype Copy of type (handle).
IERROR Fortran only: Error status (integer).

DESCRIPTION

MPI_Type_dup is a type constructor that duplicates the existing type with associated key values. For each key value, the respective copy callback function determines the attribute value associated with this key in the new communicator. One particular action that a copy callback may take is to delete the attribute from the new data type. Returns in newtype a new data type with exactly the same properties as type, as well as any copied cached information. The new data type has identical upper bound and lower bound and yields the same net result when fully decoded with the functions described in Section 8.6 of the MPI-2 standard. newtype has the same committed state as the old type.

NOTES

Note that it is not defined by the MPI standard what happens if the attribute copy callback invokes other MPI functions. In Open MPI, it is not valid for attribute copy callbacks (or any of their children) to add or delete attributes on the same object on which the attribute copy callback is being invoked.

ERRORS

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.
