Report Typos and Errors


Causes PC to generate an error if a FPE, for example a zero pivot, is detected.


#include "petscksp.h" 
PetscErrorCode  PCSetErrorIfFailure(PC pc,PetscBool flg)
Logically Collective on PC

Input Parameters

pc - iterative context obtained from PCCreate()
flg - PETSC_TRUE indicates you want the error generated


Normally PETSc continues if a linear solver fails due to a failed setup of a preconditioner, you can call KSPGetConvergedReason() after a KSPSolve() to determine if it has converged or failed. Or use -ksp_error_if_not_converged to cause the program to terminate as soon as lack of convergence is detected.

This is propagated into KSPs used by this PC, which then propagate it into PCs used by those KSPs
