NAME

mcv - mesh file converter  

SYNOPSIS

mcv [options] [imfile] [omfile] [oxfile]
 

DESCRIPTION

The mcv program converts Scotch mesh files from and to other external file formats.

File imfile is converted into mesh file omfile, with optional geometry data being put in geometry file oxfile, if it is available.

When file names are not specified, data is read from standard input and written to standard output. Standard streams can also be explicitly represented by a dash '-'.

When the proper libraries have been included at compile time, mcv can directly handle compressed meshes, both as input and output. A stream is treated as compressed whenever its name is postfixed with a compressed file extension, such as in 'brol.msh.bz2' or '-.gz'. The compression formats which can be supported are the bzip2 format ('.bz2'), the gzip format ('.gz'), and the lzma format ('.lzma', on input only).
