MPI_Type_extent(3)		      MPI		    MPI_Type_extent(3)

NAME
       MPI_Type_extent -  Returns the extent of	a datatype

SYNOPSIS
       int MPI_Type_extent(MPI_Datatype	datatype, MPI_Aint *extent)

INPUT PARAMETERS
       datatype
	      -	datatype (handle)

OUTPUT PARAMETER
       extent -	datatype extent	(address integer)

THREAD AND INTERRUPT SAFETY
       This  routine is	both thread- and interrupt-safe.  This means that this
       routine may safely be used by multiple threads and from within a	signal
       handler.

DEPRECATED FUNCTION
       The  MPI-2  standard deprecated a number	of routines because MPI-2 pro-
       vides better versions.  This routine is one of those  that  was	depre-
       cated.	The  routine  may continue to be used, but new code should use
       the  replacement	 routine.   The	 replacement  for  this	  routine   is
       MPI_Type_get_extent .

NOTES FOR FORTRAN
       All  MPI	routines in Fortran (except for	MPI_WTIME and MPI_WTICK	) have
       an additional argument ierr at the end of the argument list.   ierr  is
       an  integer and has the same meaning as the return value	of the routine
       in C.  In Fortran, MPI routines are subroutines,	and are	 invoked  with
       the call	statement.

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

ERRORS
       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 com-
       municators),  MPI_File_set_errhandler  (for files), and MPI_Win_set_er-
       rhandler	(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 guarentee that an MPI program can continue past
       an error; however, MPI implementations will attempt to  continue	 when-
       ever possible.

       MPI_SUCCESS
	      -	No error; MPI routine completed	successfully.
       MPI_ERR_TYPE
	      -	Invalid	datatype argument.  May	be an uncommitted MPI_Datatype
	      (see MPI_Type_commit ).
