VecScatterCreateToZero

Creates an output vector and a scatter context used to copy all vector values into the output vector on the zeroth processor

Synopsis

#include "petscvec.h"    
PetscErrorCode  VecScatterCreateToZero(Vec vin,VecScatter *ctx,Vec *vout)
Collective on Vec

Input Parameter

vin -input MPIVEC

Output Parameter

ctx - scatter context
vout - output SEQVEC that is large enough to scatter into on processor 0 and of length zero on all other processors

Note: vout may be NULL [NULL_OBJECT from fortran] if you do not need to have it created

Usage

       VecScatterCreateToZero(vin,&ctx,&vout);

       // scatter as many times as you need
       VecScatterBegin(ctx,vin,vout,INSERT_VALUES,SCATTER_FORWARD);
       VecScatterEnd(ctx,vin,vout,INSERT_VALUES,SCATTER_FORWARD);

       // destroy scatter context and local vector when no longer needed
       VecScatterDestroy(&ctx);
       VecDestroy(&vout);

Do NOT create a vector and then pass it in as the final argument vout! vout is created by this routine automatically (unless you pass NULL in for that argument if you do not need it).
