Hi Barry,
I got the following result:
vyan2000 at vyan2000-linux ~/NCproject/general $ mpirun -np 1 ./HeatProfile1D
-snes_mf_operator
Alarm clock
vyan2000 at vyan2000-linux ~/NCproject/general $ mpirun -np 1 ./HeatProfile1D
-snes_type test
Alarm clock
Are they normal responses and what do they indicate?
Thanks a lot,
Yan
