MOAB: Mesh Oriented datABase  (version 5.3.1)
QuadTriConv.cpp

Merge vertices in 2d cell, if they are repeated
To run: QuadTriConv input_file output_file

In this example, a mesh that has vertices repeated due to south or north pole, for example in an rll mesh, need to be converted to triangles, preserving GLOBAL_ID tag
