Report Typos and Errors


Puts a list of option values that a single one may be selected from


#include "petscsys.h"   
PetscErrorCode PetscOptionsGetEList(PetscOptions options,const char pre[],const char opt[],const char * const *list,PetscInt ntext,PetscInt *value,PetscBool *set)
Not Collective

Input Parameters

options - options database, use NULL for default global database
pre - the string to prepend to the name or NULL
opt - option name
list - the possible choices (one of these must be selected, anything else is invalid)
ntext - number of choices

Output Parameter

value - the index of the value to return (defaults to zero if the option name is given but no choice is listed)
set - PETSC_TRUE if found, else PETSC_FALSE


If the user does not supply the option value is NOT changed. Thus you should ALWAYS initialize the ivalue if you access it without first checking if the set flag is true.

See PetscOptionsFList() for when the choices are given in a PetscFunctionList()
