This tool allows to convert a non-linear mesh to a linear mesh. All additional nodes from higher order elements in the non-linear mesh are removed when writing the linear mesh, so the meshes can be simplified. This way, simulation results from non-linear approaches to linear ones can be compared.


   convertToLinearMesh  -o <string> -i <string> [--] [--version] [-h]

   -o <string>,  --output-mesh-file <string>
     (required)  output mesh file

   -i <string>,  --input-mesh-file <string>
     (required)  input mesh file

   --,  --ignore_rest
     Ignores the rest of the labeled arguments following this flag.

     Displays version information and exits.

   -h,  --help
     Displays usage information and exits.
