Detailed Description

'Stitches' a mesh.

Original source file stitchMesh.C

Takes a mesh and two patches and merges the faces on the two patches (if geometrically possible) so the faces become internal.

Can do

Note : Is just a front-end to perfectInterface/slidingInterface.

Comparable to running a meshModifier of the form (if masterPatch is called "M" and slavePatch "S"):

    type                    slidingInterface;
    masterFaceZoneName      MSMasterZone
    slaveFaceZoneName       MSSlaveZone
    cutPointZoneName        MSCutPointZone
    cutFaceZoneName         MSCutFaceZone
    masterPatchName         M;
    slavePatchName          S;
    typeOfMatch             partial or integral
