Tells the preconditioner to do an in-place factorization.

-pc_factor_in_place <true,false> - Activate/deactivate in-place factorization
For dense matrices, this enables the solution of much larger problems. For sparse matrices the factorization cannot be done truly in-place so this does not save memory during the factorization, but after the matrix is factored, the original unfactored matrix is freed, thus recovering that space. For ICC(0) and ILU(0) with the default natural ordering the factorization is done efficiently in-place.
PCFactorSetUseInplace() can only be used with the
KSPPREONLY or when
a different matrix is provided for the multiply and the preconditioner in
a call to
This is because the Krylov space methods require an application of the
matrix multiplication, which is not possible here because the matrix has
been factored in-place, replacing the original matrix.
