[Gmsh] element coordinates and connectivity of mesh for FE processing

Dear Gmshers,

Is there a readily available code that I can read the node coordinates 
and the element connectivity tables in Gmsh. I want to generate element 
matrices for some kind of academic problems(plates, 3D solids) to make 
some tries for some new methods in the model reduction field.

I checked the manual, there are some tips in the manual already but I 
did not want to start coding right away, perhaps someone(or another open 
source code) has done this before and shared the codes as well(hopefully).

Best wishes,

There are some things which cannot
be learned quickly, and time, which is all we have,
must be paid heavily for their acquiring.
They are the very simplest things,
and because it takes a man's life to know them
the little new that each man gets from life
is very costly and the only heritage he has to leave.
