PetscHasExternalPackage

Determine whether PETSc has been configured with the given package

Synopsis

#include "petscsys.h"   
PetscErrorCode  PetscHasExternalPackage(const char pkg[], PetscBool *has)
Not Collective

Input Parameters

pkg - external package name

Output Parameters

has - PETSC_TRUE if PETSc is configured with the given package, else PETSC_FALSE.

Notes

This is basically an alternative for PETSC_HAVE_XXX whenever a preprocessor macro is not available/desirable, e.g. in Python.

The external package name pkg is e.g. "hdf5", "yaml", "parmetis". It should correspond to the name listed in ./configure --help or e.g. in PetscViewerType, MatPartitioningType, MatSolverType.

The lookup is case insensitive, i.e. looking for "HDF5" or "hdf5" is the same.
