When you create hard links between edges in a set, GAMBIT associates the edges with each other such that any meshing or splitting operation applied to one or more of the edges is similarly applied to all edges in the set. For example, if you grade or mesh an edge that is hard-linked to another edge, GAMBIT grades or meshes both edges according to the grading scheme and parameters applied to the specified edge. Likewise, if you split an edge that is hard-linked to another edge, GAMBIT splits both edges.

When you grade or mesh an edge that is soft-linked to other edges, you can simultaneously apply the grading or meshing specifications to all of the edges that are soft-linked to the specified edge.
