VecSet

Sets all components of a vector to a single scalar value.

Synopsis

#include "petscvec.h"   
PetscErrorCode  VecSet(Vec x,PetscScalar alpha)
Logically Collective on Vec

Input Parameters

x - the vector
alpha - the scalar

Output Parameter

x -the vector

Note

For a vector of dimension n, VecSet() computes
    x[i] = alpha, for i=1,...,n,
so that all vector entries then equal the identical scalar value, alpha. Use the more general routine VecSetValues() to set different vector entries.

You CANNOT call this after you have called VecSetValues() but before you call VecAssemblyBegin/End().
