       MPI_Type_set_name -  Set a name on a datatype


       #include <mpi.h>
       MPI_Type_set_name(MPI_Datatype type, char *name)


       type   - MPI datatype
       name   - Pointer to the name of dataname


       This  function  associates  a name with a datatype, which can be useful
       for debugging purposes.  The function MPI_Type_get_name can be used  to
       retrieve name that was previously set with MPI_Type_set_name .

       Named predefined datatypes have the default names of the datatype name.
       For example, MPI_WCHAR has the default name of MPI_WCHAR .

       It  is  legal  to  change  any   of   these   names   with   calls   to
       MPI_Type_set_name .

       Names  passed  in  C  must  include  the null terminator, and can be of
       maximum length MPI_MAX_OBJECT_NAME  (including  the  null  terminator).
       Names   passed   in   Fortran   can  also  have  a  maximum  length  of

       Setting a name on a datatype that already has a name associated with it
       replaces the old name.


       If an error occurs in an MPI function, the current MPI error handler is
       called to handle it.  By default, this error  handler  aborts  the  MPI
       job.   The  error  handler may be changed with MPI_Errhandler_set ; the
       predefined error handler MPI_ERRORS_RETURN may be used to  cause  error
       values  to  be  returned  (in C and Fortran; this error handler is less
       useful in with the C++ MPI  bindings.   The  predefined  error  handler
       MPI::ERRORS_THROW_EXCEPTIONS  should  be used in C++ if the error value
       needs to be recovered).  Note that MPI does not guarantee that  an  MPI
       program can continue past an error.

       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.   The  C++  bindings  for  MPI do not return error
       values; instead, error values are communicated by  throwing  exceptions
       of  type  MPI::Exception  (but  not  by  default).  Exceptions are only
       thrown if the error value is not MPI::SUCCESS .

       Note that if the MPI::ERRORS_RETURN handler is set in  C++,  while  MPI
       functions  will  return  upon an error, there will be no way to recover
       what the actual error value was.
              - No error; MPI routine completed successfully.
              - Invalid datatype argument.  May be an uncommitted MPI_Datatype
              (see MPI_Type_commit ).
              -  Invalid  argument.   Some  argument  is  invalid  and  is not
              identified by a specific error class.  This is typically a  NULL
              pointer or other such error.

       contains  the  text  of  both  the  MPI-1  and  MPI-2 standards.  These
       documents contain detailed information about each MPI function (most of
       which is not duplicated in these man pages).
