SEND(3PVM)			PVM Version 3.4			    SEND(3PVM)

NAME
       pvm_send	- Immediately sends the	data in	the active message buffer.

SYNOPSIS
       C    int	info = pvm_send( int tid, int msgtag )

       Fortran	 call pvmfsend(	tid, msgtag, info )

PARAMETERS
       tid     Integer task identifier of destination process.

       msgtag  Integer	message	tag supplied by	the user.  msgtag should be >=
	       0.

       info    Integer status code returned by the routine.

DESCRIPTION
       The routine pvm_send sends a message stored in the active  send	buffer
       to the PVM process identified by	tid.  msgtag is	used to	label the con-
       tent of the message.  If	pvm_send is successful,	info  will  be	0.  If
       some error occurs then info will	be < 0.

       The  pvm_send routine is	asynchronous.  Computation on the sending pro-
       cessor resumes as soon as the message is	safely on its way to  the  re-
       ceiving	processor.   This is in	contrast to synchronous	communication,
       during which computation	on  the	 sending  processor  halts  until  the
       matching	receive	is executed by the receiving processor.

       The  PVM	model guarantees the following about message order.  If	task 1
       sends message A to task 2, then task 1 sends message B to task 2,  mes-
       sage  A will arrive at task 2 before message B.	Moreover, if both mes-
       sages arrive before task	2 does a receive, then a wildcard receive will
       always return message A.

       Terminating  a PVM task immediately after sending a message or messages
       from it may result in those messages being lost.	 To  be	 sure,	always
       call pvm_exit() before stopping.

EXAMPLES
       C:
	    info = pvm_initsend( PvmDataDefault	);
	    info = pvm_pkint( array, 10, 1 );
	    msgtag = 3 ;
	    info = pvm_send( tid, msgtag );

       Fortran:
	    CALL PVMFINITSEND(PVMRAW, INFO)
	    CALL PVMFPACK( REAL8, DATA,	100, 1,	INFO )
	    CALL PVMFSEND( TID,	3, INFO	)

ERRORS
       These error conditions can be returned by pvm_send

       PvmBadParam
	      giving an	invalid	tid or a msgtag.

       PvmSysErr
	      pvmd not responding.

       PvmNoBuf
	      no active	send buffer. Try pvm_initsend()	before send.
