   'merg' 'n'|'e'|'p'|'l'|'c'|'s' <set> <gtol> 'nolock'
This keyword is used to merge close points and nodes or equally defined entities. The following entities are known: Nodes n, Elements e, Points p, Lines l, Combined Lines c, Surfaces s. For example, to merge points included in the set point-set type

merg p point-set

Only entities included in the set are considered. The value gtol determines the maximum distance between merged nodes and points. The parameter nolock will force merging even if the dependent entities, like lines, are degenerated afterwards. For example, a degenerate line will have two equal points.
