PetscAssert#

Assert that a particular condition is true

Synopsis#

#include <petscerror.h>
void PetscAssert(bool cond, MPI_Comm comm, PetscErrorCode ierr, const char *message, ...)

Collective

Input Parameters#

  • cond - The boolean condition

  • comm - The communicator on which the check can be collective on

  • ierr - A nonzero error code, see include/petscerror.h for the complete list

  • message - Error message in printf format

Notes#

Equivalent to PetscCheck() if debugging is enabled, and PetscAssume(cond) otherwise.

See PetscCheck() for usage and behaviour.

This is needed instead of simply using assert() because this correctly handles the collective nature of errors under MPI
