Routine that is called when an error has been detected, usually called through the macro SETERRQ(PETSC_COMM_SELF,).


#include "petscsys.h" 
PetscErrorCode  PetscError(MPI_Comm comm,int line,const char *func,const char* file,const char *dir,PetscErrorCode n,PetscErrorType p,const char *mess,...)
Not Collective

Input Parameters

comm - communicator over which error occurred. ALL ranks of this communicator MUST call this routine
line - the line number of the error (indicated by __LINE__)
func - the function where the error occured (indicated by __FUNCT__)
dir - the directory of file (indicated by __SDIR__)
file - the file in which the error was detected (indicated by __FILE__)
mess - an error text string, usually just printed to the screen
n - the generic error number
p - PETSC_ERROR_INITIAL indicates the error was initially detected, PETSC_ERROR_REPEAT indicates this is a traceback from a previously detected error
mess - formatted message string - aka printf


Most users need not directly use this routine and the error handlers, but can instead use the simplified interface SETERRQ, which has the calling sequence

Experienced users can set the error handler with PetscPushErrorHandler().
