[Gmsh] Command Line - Saving File as "inp"

Hi René,

Indeed, we forgot to add "inp" in the strings recognized by the "-format" options on the command line. This is now fixed in svn.

But the simpler solution is to actually not use the "-format" option at all: by default gmsh selects the format depending on the extension of the output file name, so you can simply do

  gmsh plate.step -3 -o plate.inp

Cheers,

Christophe
