[Simgrid-user] MSG_task_receive_from_host

Dear all,

When trying to use MSG_task_receive_from_host (with  SimGrid 3.7), I get 
the following exception: "Function MSG_mailbox_get_task_ext unimplemented".

Do you have any suggestions on this problem?

Actually I tried to use this function in order to deal with another 
problem I have. My slaves receive different kinds of tasks and sometimes 
they need to wait for a specific task (message) before they can continue 
receiving/treating other tasks that may arrive in the meanwhile. I could 
probably deal with this by creating my own buffer with the tasks arrived 
in the meanwhile, but I was wondering if there aren't already some 
Simgrid mechanisms allowing to do this. MSG_task_receive_from_host 
seemed to be a possible solution. Are there other possibilities?
