# PetscIntCast

casts a PetscInt64 (which is 64 bits in size) to a PetscInt (which may be 32 bits in size), generates an error if the PetscInt is not large enough to hold the number.
### Synopsis

PETSC_STATIC_INLINE PetscErrorCode PetscIntCast(PetscInt64 a,PetscInt *b)

Not Collective

### Input Parameter

**a ** -the PetscInt64 value

### Output Parameter

**b ** -the resulting PetscInt value

Notes: If integers needed for the applications are too large to fit in 32 bit ints you can ./configure using --with-64-bit-indices to make PetscInt use 64 bit ints

Not available from Fortran
