Specify the external finite element mesh to be used in the finite element Poisson-Boltzmann calculation (fe-manual). These must have been input via an earlier READ mesh statement. The syntax is

   usemesh {id}

where id is an integer ID specifying the particular map read in with READ mesh. These IDs are assigned sequentially, starting from 1, and incremented independently for each mesh read by APBS.
