#include "petscsys.h"   
PetscErrorCode  PetscOptionsGetBool(const char pre[],const char name[],PetscBool  *ivalue,PetscBool  *set)
Not Collective

Input Parameters

pre - the string to prepend to the name or NULL
name - the option one is seeking

Output Parameter

ivalue - the logical value to return
set - PETSC_TRUE if found, else PETSC_FALSE

TRUE, true, YES, yes, nostring, and 1 all translate to PETSC_TRUE FALSE, false, NO, no, and 0 all translate to PETSC_FALSE
