Subject: [OMPI docs] Error in man pages (MPI_IGNORE_STATUSES)
From: Zbigniew Koza (zzkoza_at_[hidden])

Hi,
In virtually all manpages of MPI_Wailtall and related functions,
including mthe anpages found in open-mpi web site:

http://www.open-mpi.org/doc/v1.5/man3/MPI_Waitall.3.php

there's an error in referencing nonexistent constant
MPI_IGNORE_STATUSES instead of correct MPI_STATUSES_IGNORE.
This happens for example in section Errors of this man page.
The same problem refers to related manpages, e.g. MPI_Waitany etc.
I suggest grepping the sources for MPI_IGNORE_STATUSES and replacing
all its instances with MPI_STATUSES_IGNORE.

This strange error is absolutely common in all versions of MPI man
pages I found in the Internet, see for example
http://www.unix.com/man-page/All/3/MPI_Waitall/

regards,
Z Koza
