Executing GEFICOTPrecise commands are detailed in the next section. Anyway, to use GEFICOT, simply go into the folder where the software is and type in a terminal:
./Geficot.sh [commands] on Linux/Mac OSX
where the [commands] are replaced by the action you want to perform. In the next paragraphs, the two commands (./geficot.sh and geficot.bat) will be replaced by the generic "geficot" command. GEFICOT comes with a simple help integrated, to use it type geficot -h.
Geficot.bat [commands] on Windows systems
Id conflict resolutionThis function can be useful for example when using the include file possibility of Gmsh and that the two files have some elements that have the same ids. This tool will modify the second file to be sure that there is no conflict with the first one. The commmand to execute it is:
geficot –c file1.geo file2.geo result.geo
Duplicates removalThis function can be used to suppress duplicated elements. Two modes are available, the first one tries to automatically remove all elements that are duplicated. The second one takes in account a maximum distance to consider two elements as duplicates. The commands to execute it are (d: duplicates/m: manual)
geficot –d file.geo result.geo
GEFICOT will analyse the "file.geo" and create a version "result.geo" where the duplicates are replaced by a new element. GEFICOT also handles the physicals defined in Gmsh : it replaces all occurences of the duplicated elements in the physicals definition by the new created elements.
geficot –m file.geo result.geo distance
