The indices are relative to entries, not blocks.


#include "petscis.h"     
PetscErrorCode  ISBlockSetIndices(IS is,PetscInt bs,PetscInt n,const PetscInt idx[],PetscCopyMode mode)
Collective on IS

Input Parameters


When the communicator is not MPI_COMM_SELF, the operations on the index sets, IS, are NOT conceptually the same as MPI_Group operations. The index sets are then distributed sets of indices and thus certain operations on them are collective.


If you wish to index the values {0,1,4,5}, then use a block size of 2 and idx of {0,2}.

is - the index set
bs - number of elements in each block, one for each block and count of block not indices
n - the length of the index set (the number of blocks)
idx - the list of integers, these are by block, not by location + mode - see PetscCopyMode, only PETSC_COPY_VALUES and PETSC_OWN_POINTER are supported
