VecCopy

Copies a vector. y <- x

Synopsis

#include "petscvec.h"   
PetscErrorCode  VecCopy(Vec x,Vec y)
Logically Collective on Vec

Input Parameter

x -the vector

Output Parameter

y -the copy

Notes

For default parallel PETSc vectors, both x and y must be distributed in the same manner; local copies are done.

Developer Notes

PetscCheckSameTypeAndComm(x,1,y,2) is not used on these vectors because we allow one of the vectors to be sequential and one to be parallel so long as both have the same local sizes. This is used in some internal functions in PETSc.
