.SH DESCRIPTION
.B mbconvert
uses the MOAB library to translate between mesh file formats or
to extract subsets of mesh files.  The type of the output file
is determined from the file extension.  The 
.B -l
option can be used to list the file formats supported.

The
.I id_list
passed to many of the subset options can contain either individual IDs 
or ranges of IDs, separated by  a comma (',').  Ranges of IDs are 
specified with a pair of values separated by a dash ('-').  An ID list
may not contain spaces.  

Any combination of subset options, including repetition of a singe option 
with different ID lists may be specified.  The output will contain the
union of all of the subset options.  If no subset options are specified
the entire input mesh is written to the output file.

.SH OPTIONS
.IP -h
Print help to stdout and exit.
.IP -l
List supported file formats to stdout.
.IP "-a sat_file"
File to store extracted geometry from .cub file.
.IP -A
Do not store extracted geometry from .cub file.
.IP -t
Print timing data for read and write operations to stdout.
.IP -g
Print verbose debugging and status information to stdout.
.IP "-v idlist"
List of IDs of geometric volumes for which the corresponding mesh is to be written.
.IP "-s idlist"
List of IDs of geometric surfaces for which the corresponding mesh is to be written.
.IP "-c idlist"
List of IDs of geometric curves for which the corresponding mesh is to be written.
.IP "-V idlist"
List of IDs of geometric vertices for which the corresponding mesh is to be written.
.IP "-m idlist"
List of IDs for material sets (blocks) to write.
.IP "-d idlist"
List of IDs for Dirchlet sets (nodesets) to write.
.IP "-n idlist"
List of IDs for Neumann sets (sidesets) to write.
.IP "-1"
Write all one-dimensional mesh entities (edges.)
.IP "-2"
