  • p – Address of pointer to hold the result.

Returns

An error code: 0 - success, otherwise - failure

int CeedCallocArray(size_t n, size_t unit, void *p)

Allocate a cleared (zeroed) array on the host; use CeedCalloc()

Memory usage can be tracked by the library.

Backend Developer Functions

See

CeedFree()

Parameters

int CeedFree(void *p)

Free memory allocated using CeedMalloc() or CeedCalloc()

Parameters
  • p – address of pointer to memory. This argument is of type void* to avoid needing a cast, but is the address of the pointer (which is zeroed) rather than the pointer.

int CeedRegister(const char *prefix, int (*init)(const char*, Ceed), unsigned int priority, )

Register a Ceed backend.

Backend Developer Functions

Parameters
  • prefix – Prefix of resources for this backend to respond to. For example, the reference backend responds to “/cpu/self”.

  • init – Initialization function called by CeedInit() when the backend is selected to drive the requested resource.

  • priority – Integer priority. Lower values are preferred in case the resource requested by CeedInit() has non-unique best prefix match.

Returns

An error code: 0 - success, otherwise - failure

int CeedIsDebug(Ceed ceed, bool *is_debug)

Return debugging status flag.

Backend Developer Functions

Parameters
  • ceed – Ceed context to get debugging flag

  • is_debug – Variable to store debugging flag

Returns

An error code: 0 - success, otherwise - failure

int CeedGetParent(Ceed ceed, Ceed *parent)

Retrieve a parent Ceed context.

Backend Developer Functions

Parameters
  • ceed – Ceed context to retrieve parent of

  • parent[out] Address to save the parent to

Returns

An error code: 0 - success, otherwise - failure

int CeedGetDelegate(Ceed ceed, Ceed *delegate)

Retrieve a delegate Ceed context.

Backend Developer Functions

Parameters
  • ceed – Ceed context to retrieve delegate of

  • delegate[out] Address to save the delegate to

Returns

An error code: 0 - success, otherwise - failure

int CeedSetDelegate(Ceed ceed, Ceed delegate)

Set a delegate Ceed context.

This function allows a Ceed context to set a delegate Ceed context. All backend implementations default to the delegate Ceed context, unless overridden.

Backend Developer Functions

Parameters
  • ceed – Ceed context to set delegate of

  • delegate[out] Address to set the delegate to

Returns

An error code: 0 - success, otherwise - failure

int CeedGetObjectDelegate(Ceed ceed, Ceed *delegate, const char *obj_name)

Retrieve a delegate Ceed context for a specific object type.

Backend Developer Functions

Parameters
  • ceed – Ceed context to retrieve delegate of

  • delegate[out] Address to save the delegate to

  • obj_name[in] Name of the object type to retrieve delegate for

Returns

An error code: 0 - success, otherwise - failure

int CeedSetObjectDelegate(Ceed ceed, Ceed delegate, const char *obj_name)

Set a delegate Ceed context for a specific object type.

This function allows a Ceed context to set a delegate Ceed context for a given type of Ceed object. All backend implementations default to the delegate Ceed context for this object. For example, CeedSetObjectDelegate(ceed, refceed, “Basis”) uses refceed implementations for all CeedBasis backend functions.

Backend Developer Functions

Parameters
  • ceed – Ceed context to set delegate of

  • delegate[out] Address to set the delegate to

  • obj_name[in] Name of the object type to set delegate for

Returns

  • resource[out] Variable to store fallback resource

Returns

An error code: 0 - success, otherwise - failure

int CeedSetOperatorFallbackResource(Ceed ceed, const char *resource)

Set the fallback resource for CeedOperators.

The current resource, if any, is freed by calling this function. This string is freed upon the destruction of the Ceed context.

Backend Developer Functions

Parameters
  • ceed[out] Ceed context

  • resource – Fallback resource to set

Returns

An error code: 0 - success, otherwise - failure

int CeedGetOperatorFallbackParentCeed(Ceed ceed, Ceed *parent)

An error code: 0 - success, otherwise - failure

int CeedSetBackendFunction(Ceed ceed, const char *type, void *object, const char *func_name, int (*f)())

Set a backend function.

This function is used for a backend to set the function associated with the Ceed objects. For example, CeedSetBackendFunction(ceed, “Ceed”, ceed, “VectorCreate”, BackendVectorCreate) sets the backend implementation of ‘CeedVectorCreate’ and CeedSetBackendFunction(ceed, “Basis”, basis, “Apply”, BackendBasisApply) sets the backend implementation of ‘CeedBasisApply’. Note, the prefix ‘Ceed’ is not required for the object type (“Basis” vs “CeedBasis”).

Backend Developer Functions

Parameters
  • ceed – Ceed context for error handling

  • type – Type of Ceed object to set function for

  • object[out] Ceed object to set function for

  • func_name – Name of function to set

  • f – Function to set
