The different OASIS3.3 USE statements were gathered into one USE mod_oasis (or one USE mod_prism), therefore much simpler to use.
OASIS3-MCT retains prior interface names of OASIS3.3 (e.g. prism_put_proto) to ensure full backward compatibility. However, new interface names such as oasis_put are also available and should be prefered. Both routine names are listed in chapter .
Auxiliary routines prism_put_inquire, prism_put_restart_proto, prism_get_freq are not supported yet. (Note: prism_put_inquire and prism_get_freqs were reintroduced in OASIS3-MCT_3.0 and equivalent of prism_put_restart_proto in OASIS3-MCT_4.0.)
New routines oasis_create_couplcomm and oasis_set_couplcomm are now available to create or set a coupling communicator in the case only a subset of the component processes participate in the coupling. But even in this case, all OASIS3-MCT interface routines, besides the grid definition (see section ) and the “put” and “ get” call per se (see section ), are collective and must be called by all processes. (Note: this has changed with OASIS3-MCT_3.0.)
New routines oasis_get_debug and oasis_set_debug are now available to respectively retrieve the current OASIS3-MCT internal debug level (set by $NLOGPRT in the namcouple) or to change it (see section ).
