MPI_Compare_and_swap - Perform one-sided atomic compare-and-swap.
int MPI_Compare_and_swap(const void *origin_addr, const void *compare_addr,
void *result_addr, MPI_Datatype datatype, int target_rank,
MPI_Aint target_disp, MPI_Win win)
This function compares one element of type datatype in the compare buffer
compare_addr with the buffer at offset target_disp in the target window
specified by target_rank and win and replaces the value at the target with the
value in the origin buffer origin_addr if the compare buffer and the target
buffer are identical. The original value at the target is returned in the
- - initial address of buffer (choice)
- - initial address of compare buffer (choice)
- - initial address of result buffer (choice)
- - datatype of the entry in origin, result, and target buffers
- - rank of target (nonnegative integer)
- - displacement from start of window to beginning of target buffer
- - window object (handle)
This operation is atomic with respect to other "accumulate"
The parameter datatype must belong to one of the following categories of
predefined datatypes: C integer, Fortran integer, Logical, Multi-language
types, or Byte as specified in Section 5.9.2 on page 176. The origin and
result buffers (origin_addr and result_addr) must be disjoint.
All MPI routines in Fortran (except for MPI_WTIME
have an additional argument ierr
at the end of the argument list.
is an integer and has the same meaning as the return value of the
routine in C. In Fortran, MPI routines are subroutines, and are invoked with
All MPI objects (e.g., MPI_Datatype
) are of type
All MPI routines (except MPI_Wtime

last argument. Before the value is returned, the current MPI error handler is
called. By default, this error handler aborts the MPI job. The error handler
may be changed with MPI_Comm_set_errhandler
(for files), and MPI_Win_set_errhandler
(for RMA windows). The MPI-1 routine MPI_Errhandler_set
may be used but
its use is deprecated. The predefined error handler MPI_ERRORS_RETURN
may be used to cause error values to be returned. Note that MPI does
guarentee that an MPI program can continue past an error; however,
MPI implementations will attempt to continue whenever possible.
- - No error; MPI routine completed successfully.
- - Invalid argument. Some argument is invalid and is not identified by a
specific error class (e.g., MPI_ERR_RANK ).
- - Invalid count argument. Count arguments must be non-negative; a count of
zero is often valid.
- - Invalid operation. MPI operations (objects of type MPI_Op ) must
either be one of the predefined operations (e.g., MPI_SUM ) or
created with MPI_Op_create .
- - Invalid source or destination rank. Ranks must be between zero and the
size of the communicator minus one; ranks in a receive ( MPI_Recv ,
MPI_Irecv , MPI_Sendrecv , etc.) may also be
- - Invalid datatype argument. Additionally, this error can occur if an
uncommitted MPI_Datatype (see MPI_Type_commit ) is used in a
- - Invalid MPI window object
