Begins a nonblocking receive


#include "mpi.h"
int MPI_Irecv( buf, count, datatype, source, tag, comm, request )
void             *buf;
int              count;
MPI_Datatype     datatype;
int              source;
int              tag;
MPI_Comm         comm;
MPI_Request      *request;

Input Parameters

buf initial address of receive buffer (choice)
count number of elements in receive buffer (integer)
datatype datatype of each receive buffer element (handle)
source rank of source (integer)
tag message tag (integer)
comm communicator (handle)

Output Parameter

communication request (handle)

Notes for Fortran

All MPI routines in Fortran (except for MPI_WTIME and MPI_WTICK) havean additional argument ierr at the end of the argument list. ierris an integer and has the same meaning as the return value of the routinein C. In Fortran, MPI routines are subroutines, and are invoked with thecall statement.

All MPI objects (e.g., MPI_Datatype, MPI_Comm) are of type INTEGERin Fortran.
