PetscErrorCode PetscObjectStateGet(PetscObject obj,PetscObjectState *state)
Not Collective

Input Parameter

obj -any PETSc object, for example a Vec, Mat or KSP. This must be cast with a (PetscObject), for example, PetscObjectStateGet((PetscObject)mat,&state);

Output Parameter

state -the object state

Notes: object state is an integer which gets increased every time the object is changed. By saving and later querying the object state one can determine whether information about the object is still current. Currently, state is maintained for Vec and Mat objects.
