PetscMemcpy

Copies n bytes, beginning at location b, to the space beginning at location a. The two memory regions CANNOT overlap, use PetscMemmove() in that case.

Synopsis

PETSC_STATIC_INLINE PetscErrorCode PetscMemcpy(void *a,const void *b,size_t n)
Not Collective

Input Parameters

b - pointer to initial memory space
n - length (in bytes) of space to copy

Output Parameter

a -pointer to copy space

Compile Option

PETSC_PREFER_DCOPY_FOR_MEMCPY will cause the BLAS dcopy() routine to be used for memory copies on double precision values. PETSC_PREFER_COPY_FOR_MEMCPY will cause C code to be used for memory copies on double precision values. PETSC_PREFER_FORTRAN_FORMEMCPY will cause Fortran code to be used for memory copies on double precision values.

Note

This routine is analogous to memcpy().

Developer Note: this is inlined for fastest performance
