CHKMEMQ

Checks the memory for corruption, calls error handler if any is detected

Synopsis

#include 
CHKMEMQ;
Not Collective

Notes

We highly recommend using valgrind http://www.mcs.anl.gov/petsc/documentation/faq.html#valgrind for finding memory problems. This is useful on systems that do not have valgrind, but much much less useful.

Must run with the option -malloc_debug to enable this option

Once the error handler is called the calling function is then returned from with the given error code.

By defaults prints location where memory that is corrupted was allocated.

Use CHKMEMA for functions that return void
