int MPI_Get_processor_name(char *name, int *resultlen)
This routine is thread-safe. This means that this routine may be safely used by multiple threads without the need for any user-provided thread locks. However, the routine is not interrupt safe. Typically, this is due to the use of memory allocation routines such as malloc or other non-MPICH runtime routines that are themselves not interrupt-safe.
All MPI objects (e.g., MPI_Datatype, MPI_Comm) are of type INTEGER in Fortran.
In Fortran, the character argument should be declared as a character string of MPI_MAX_PROCESSOR_NAME rather than an array of dimension MPI_MAX_PROCESSOR_NAME. That is,
character*(MPI_MAX_PROCESSOR_NAME) namerather than
character name(MPI_MAX_PROCESSOR_NAME)The two
The sizes of MPI strings in Fortran are one less than the sizes of that string in C/C++ because the C/C++ versions provide room for the trailing null character required by C/C++. For example, MPI_MAX_ERROR_STRING is mpif.h is one smaller than the same value in mpi.h. See the MPI standard, sections 2.6.2 and 4.12.9.
All MPI routines (except MPI_Wtime and MPI_Wtick) return an error value; C routines as the value of the function and Fortran routines in the 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 communicators), MPI_File_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 not guarantee that an MPI program can continue past an error; however, MPI implementations will attempt to continue whenever possible.
