PetscOptionsReal#

Gets a PetscReal value for a particular option in the database.

Synopsis#

#include <petscoptions.h>
PetscErrorCode PetscOptionsReal(const char opt[], const char text[], const char man[], PetscReal currentvalue, PetscReal *value, PetscBool *set)

Logically Collective on the communicator passed in PetscOptionsBegin()

Input Parameters#

  • opt - option name

  • text - short string that describes the option

  • man - manual page with additional information on option

  • currentvalue - the current value; caller is responsible for setting this value correctly. Normally this is done with either

                 PetscOptionsReal(..., obj->value,&obj->value,...) or
                 value = defaultvalue
                 PetscOptionsReal(..., value,&value,&set);
                 if (set) {

Output Parameters#

Notes#

If the user does not supply the option at all value is NOT changed. Thus you should ALWAYS initialize value if you access it without first checking that set is PETSC_TRUE.

The currentvalue passed into this routine does not get transferred to the output value variable automatically.

Must be used between a PetscOptionsBegin() and a PetscOptionsEnd()
