Notes#

Virtually all PETSc functions return an error code. It is the callers responsibility to check the value of the returned error code after each PETSc call to determine if any errors occurred. A set of convenience macros (e.g. PetscCall(), PetscCallVoid()) are provided for this purpose. Failing to properly check for errors is not supported, as errors may leave PETSc in an undetermined state.

One can retrieve the error string corresponding to a particular error code using PetscErrorMessage().

The user can also configure PETSc with the --with-strict-petscerrorcode option to enable compiler warnings when the returned error codes are not captured and checked. Users are heavily encouraged to opt-in to this option, as it will become enabled by default in a future release.

Developer Notes#

These are the generic error codes. These error codes are used in many different places in the PETSc source code. The C-string versions are at defined in PetscErrorStrings[] in src/sys/error/err.c, while the fortran versions are defined in src/sys/f90-mod/petscerror.h. Any changes here must also be made in both locations.
