    taktuk_recv(), taktuk_recvv(), taktuk_wait_message(), taktuk_read () and
    taktuk_readv() are used to receive a message sent by a distant process
    spawned by TakTuk.

    taktuk_recv() and taktuk_recvv() perform a blocking attempt to receive a
    message. Upon success, the TakTuk rank of the sending process is placed at
    the address pointed to by 'from' and the content of the message is either
    placed at the address pointed to by 'buffer' (and 'length' must exactly
    match the message size) or placed into the 'iovcnt' buffers specified by
    the members of the iov array: iov[0], iov[1], ..., iov[iovcnt-1] (and in
    this case the total length of these buffer must exactly match the message
    length).

    If the given timeout is not nul and expires or in any other case of error,
    a positive number is returned and the content of buffer is undefined.

    taktuk_wait_message(), taktuk_read () and taktuk_readv() are lower level
    functions performing the same task. taktuk_recv() and taktuk_recvv() are
    respectively equivalent to a call to taktuk_wait_message(), some error
    checking tests and a call to either taktuk_read() or taktuk_readv().
