how to split a patch
dear foamers,
I have created a mesh with mirrorMesh but now I have inlet on both sides of the mesh, while I want to have an outlet on one of the boundaries.
how can I split the patch into connected patches so that one will be inlet and one outlet (removing the old outlet patch that will be now an internal patch)?
I don't want to recreate all patches with autoPatch because otherwise I would have a huge number of patches

thanks for your help
