|tid||Integer task identifier of sending process supplied by the user.|
|msgtag||Integer message tag supplied by the user. msgtag should be >= 0.|
Integer returns the value of the new active receive buffer identifier.
Values less than zero indicate an error.
The routine pvm_recv blocks the process until a message with label msgtag has arrived from tid. pvm_recv then places the message in a new active receive buffer, which also clears the current receive buffer.
A -1 in msgtag or tid matches anything. This allows the user the following options. If tid = -1 and msgtag is defined by the user, then pvm_recv will accept a message from any process which has a matching msgtag. If msgtag = -1 and tid is defined by the user, then pvm_recv will accept any message that is sent from process tid. If tid = -1 and msgtag = -1, then pvm_recv will accept any message from any process.
The PVM model guarantees the following about message order. If task 1 sends message A to task 2, then task 1 sends message B to task 2, message A will arrive at task 2 before message B. Moreover, if both messages arrive before task 2 does a receive, then a wildcard receive will always return message A.
If pvm_recv is successful, bufid will be the value of the new active receive buffer identifier. If some error occurs then bufid will be < 0.
pvm_recv is blocking which means the routine waits until a message matching the user specified tid and msgtag values arrives at the local pvmd. If the message has already arrived then pvm_recv returns immediately with the message.
Once pvm_recv returns, the data in the message can be unpacked into the users memory using the unpack routines.
C: tid = pvm_parent(); msgtag = 4 ; bufid = pvm_recv( tid, msgtag ); info = pvm_upkint( tid_array, 10, 1 ); info = pvm_upkint( problem_size, 1, 1 ); info = pvm_upkfloat( input_array, 100, 1 );

These error conditions can be returned by pvm_recv
PvmBadParam giving an invalid tid value, or msgtag < -1. PvmSysErr pvmd not responding.
