VecCreateFromOptions#

Creates a vector whose type is set from the options database

Synopsis#

#include "petscvec.h"   
PetscErrorCode VecCreateFromOptions(MPI_Comm comm, const char *prefix, PetscInt bs, PetscInt m, PetscInt n, Vec *vec)

Collective

Input Parameters#

  • comm - The communicator for the vector object

  • prefix - [optional] prefix for the options database

  • bs - the block size (commonly 1)

  • m - the local size (or PETSC_DECIDE)

  • n - the global size (or PETSC_DETERMINE)

Output Parameter#

  • vec - The vector object

Options Database Keys#

  • -vec_type - see VecType, for example seq, mpi, cuda, defaults to mpi
