DMClone

Creates a DM object with the same topology as the original.

Synopsis

#include "petscdm.h"          
#include "petscdmlabel.h"     
#include "petscds.h"     
PetscErrorCode DMClone(DM dm, DM *newdm)
Collective

Input Parameter

dm -The original DM object

Output Parameter

newdm -The new DM object

Notes: For some DM this is a shallow clone, the result of which may share (referent counted) information with its parent. For example, DMClone() applied to a DMPLEX object will result in a new DMPLEX that shares the topology with the original DMPLEX. It does share the PetscSection of the original DM
