Not Collective

Input Parameters

n - number of objects to free (at least 1)
lineno - line number to attribute deallocation (typically __LINE__)
function - function to attribute deallocation (typically PETSC_FUNCTION_NAME)
filename - file name to attribute deallocation (typically __FILE__)

Note

This function is not normally called directly by users, but rather via the macros PetscFree1(), PetscFree2(), etc.

The pointers are zeroed to prevent users from accidently reusing space that has been freed.
