       mtst - test the consistency of source meshes


       mtst [options] [mfile] [lfile]


       The mtst program checks, in a sequential way, the consistency of a Scotch source mesh and,
       in case of success, outputs some statistics  regarding  edge  weights,  node  and  element
       vertex weights, and node and element vertex degrees.

       Source  mesh  file mfile can only be a centralized mesh file. The resulting statistics are
       stored in file lfile. 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,  mtst  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).
