   Page 176, lines 1-6 also indicate there is no CC on intercommunicators
   page 177, line 10 indicate there is no CC on intercommunicators
   page 177, line 36 - should say MPI_INIT or MPI_INIT_THREAD
   page 178 line2 - Should say "Therefore, MPI_COMM_WORLD may
   simultaneously represent disjoint groups in different processes"
   page 186, line 19-22 - needs to be rephrased or removed. At least change
   "currenty apply" to "In MPI-1, applied"
   The last bullet at line 48  on page 200, "An inter-communicator cannot
   be used for collective communication"  should be removed.
   The comment in parenthesis at line 24 on page 203 should be deleted

   page 203, lines 38-42 are not consistent with how MPI-2 defined spawn.
   These lines should be removed
   Optionally, the description of MPI_Keyval_free should be moved to
   MPI_Comm_free_keyval and the routine MPI_Keyval_free function should
   refer to MPI_Comm_free_keyval description.
   Optionally, the description of MPI_Attr_put should be moved to
   MPI_Comm_set_attr and the routine MPI_Attr_put function should refer to
   MPI_Comm_set_attr description.
   Optionally, the description of MPI_Attr_get should be moved to
   MPI_Comm_get_attr and the routine MPI_Attr_get function should refer to
   MPI_Comm_get_attr description.
   Optionally, the description of MPI_Attr_delete should be moved to
   MPI_Comm_delete_attr and the routine MPI_Attr_delete function should
   refer to MPI_Comm_delete_attr description.
   On page 226 line 36, MPI_Keyval_create should be replaced by
   On page 226 line 47 MPI_Attr_get should be replaced by
   On page 227 line 22 MPI_Attr_put should be replaced by
