I would:
1) Download the Matrix Market format
2) Use Mat test ex72 to read that matrix + vector and output them in
PETSc binary format
3) Use KSP ex10 to read the PETSc binary format and test your solver
Thanks,
Matt

What most experimenters take for granted before they begin their
experiments is infinitely more interesting than any results to which their
