PetscBinarySynchronizedRead#

Reads from a binary file.

Synopsis#

Collective

Input Parameters#

  • comm - the MPI communicator

  • fd - the file descriptor

  • num - the maximum number of items to read

  • type - the type of items to read (PETSC_INT, PETSC_REAL, PETSC_SCALAR, etc.)

Output Parameters#

  • data - the buffer

  • count - the number of items read, optional

Notes#

Does a PetscBinaryRead() followed by an MPI_Bcast()

If count is not provided and the number of items read is less than the maximum number of items to read, then this routine errors.

PetscBinarySynchronizedRead() uses byte swapping to work on all machines. Integers are stored on the file as 32 long, regardless of whether they are stored in the machine as 32 or 64, this means the same binary file may be read on any machine.
