Constructor & Destructor Documentation

walberla::Environment::Environment ( int &  argc,
char **&  argv,
bool  mpiAbortOnException = true 


argc,argvIf command line parameters are present they have to contain at least the path to the configuration file and optionally pairs of param-value: "-myParameter myValue" These values are then substituted in configuration files at positions marked with It is also possible to pass no command line options (see description below )

If command line arguments are present the constructor initializes static objects and singleton classes using information of configuration file

  • MPIManager ( via mpi::Environment )
  • reads configuration file
  • configures Logging
  • configures GlobalState

If no command line arguments are present only MPI subsystem is initialized and

  • logging is configured to default state
  • the global state is configured to a default state (the global state still can be configured by manually calling GlobalState::instance()->configure())
