In the model time stepping loop, each process implied in the coupling receives its part of the I/O-coupling field.
Module to be used by the component model to call prism_get_proto.
This routine may be called by the model at each timestep. The date argument is automatically analysed and the receiving action is actually performed only if date corresponds to a time for which it should be activated, given the period indicated by the user in the namcouple. A field will not be received at all if its coupling or I/O period indicated in the namcouple is greater than the total run time.
