       MPI_Add_error_string - Associates a string with an error code or class


C Syntax

       #include <mpi.h>
       int MPI_Add_error_string(int errorcode, char *string)

Fortran Syntax

       INCLUDE 'mpif.h'
            INTEGER        ERRORCODE, IERROR
            CHARACTER*(*)  STRING

C++ Syntax

       #include <mpi.h>
       void MPI::Add_error_string(int errorcode, const char* string)


       errorcode     MPI error class, or an error code returned by an MPI rou-
                     tine (integer).

       string        Text  that  corresponds  to  the  error  code  or   class


       IERROR        Fortran only: Error status (integer).


       This  routine  associates  an error string with an error code or class.
       Calling MPI_Add_error_string for an error code or  class  that  already
       has an associated error string will replace the old string with the new
       one. It is erroneous to call MPI_Add_error_string for  an  error  value
       not  generated  via MPI_Add_error_class or MPI_Add_error_code (e.g., an
       error code or class with a value not greater than MPI_LAST_ERRCODE).


       Almost all MPI routines return an error value; C routines as the  value
       of  the  function  and Fortran routines in the last argument. C++ func-
       tions 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.
