PetscViewerBinaryOpen#

Opens a file for binary input/output.

Synopsis#

#include "petscviewer.h"   
PetscErrorCode PetscViewerBinaryOpen(MPI_Comm comm, const char name[], PetscFileMode mode, PetscViewer *viewer)

Collective

Input Parameters#

  • comm - MPI communicator

  • name - name of file

  • mode - open mode of file

    FILE_MODE_WRITE - create new file for binary output
    FILE_MODE_READ - open existing file for binary input
    FILE_MODE_APPEND - open existing file for binary output

Output Parameter#

  • viewer - PetscViewer for binary input/output to use with the specified file

Options Database Keys#

  • -viewer_binary_filename - name of file to use

  • -viewer_binary_skip_info - true to skip opening an info file

  • -viewer_binary_skip_options - true to not use options database while creating viewer

  • -viewer_binary_skip_header - true to skip output object headers to the file

  • -viewer_binary_mpiio - true to use MPI-IO for input and output to the file (more scalable for large problems)

Note#

This PetscViewer should be destroyed with PetscViewerDestroy().

For reading files, the filename may begin with ftp:// or http:// and/or end with .gz; in this case file is brought over and uncompressed.

For creating files, if the file name ends with .gz it is automatically compressed when closed.
