Collective on PETSC_COMM_WORLD

Input Parameters#

  • options - options database or NULL for the default global database

  • argc - count of number of command line arguments

  • args - the command line arguments

  • file - [optional] PETSc database file, append “:yaml” to filename to specify YAML options format. Use NULL or empty string to not check for code specific file. Also checks ~/.petscrc, .petscrc and petscrc. Use -skip_petscrc in the code specific file (or command line) to skip ~/.petscrc, .petscrc and petscrc files.

Options Database Keys#

  • -options_file - read options from a file

  • -options_file_yaml - read options from a YAML file

Notes#

Since PetscOptionsInsert() is automatically called by PetscInitialize(), the user does not typically need to call this routine. PetscOptionsInsert() can be called several times, adding additional entries into the database.

See PetscInitialize() for options related to option database monitoring.
