17.2.222. MPI_Info_free

MPI_Info_free - Frees an info object.

17.2.222.1. SYNTAX

17.2.222.1.1. C Syntax

#include <mpi.h>

int MPI_Info_free(MPI_Info *info)

17.2.222.1.2. Fortran Syntax

USE MPI
! or the older form: INCLUDE 'mpif.h'
MPI_INFO_FREE(INFO, IERROR)
     INTEGER         INFO, IERROR

17.2.222.1.3. Fortran 2008 Syntax

USE mpi_f08
MPI_Info_free(info, ierror)
     TYPE(MPI_Info), INTENT(INOUT) :: info
     INTEGER, OPTIONAL, INTENT(OUT) :: ierror

17.2.222.2. INPUT/OUTPUT PARAMETER

  • info: Info object (handle).

17.2.222.3. OUTPUT PARAMETER

  • IERROR: Fortran only: Error status (integer).

17.2.222.4. DESCRIPTION

MPI_Info_free frees info and sets it to MPI_INFO_NULL.

17.2.222.5. ERRORS

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

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.
