       MPI_File_close - Closes a file (collective).


       C Syntax
           #include <mpi.h>
           int MPI_File_close(MPI_File *fh)

       Fortran Syntax
           INCLUDE 'mpif.h'
                  INTEGER    FH, IERROR

C++ Syntax

       #include <mpi.h>
       void MPI::File::Close()


       fh        File handle (handle).


       IERROR    Fortran only: Error status (integer).


       MPI_File_close  first  synchronizes  file  state,  then closes the file
       associated with fh.  MPI_File_close is a collective routine.  The  user
       is  responsible  for  ensuring that all outstanding requests associated
       with fh have completed before calling MPI_File_close.


       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.  For  MPI I/O function errors, the default error handler is set
       to  MPI_ERRORS_RETURN.  The  error  handler   may   be   changed   with
       MPI_File_set_errhandler;      the      predefined     error     handler
       MPI_ERRORS_ARE_FATAL may be used to make I/O errors  fatal.  Note  that
       MPI  does not guarantee that an MPI program can continue past an error.
