The ADMESH program may be what you need. It reads in STL files,
reconstructs the topology, and tries to fix errors. The resulting
object can be then be saved in several file formats. The program
has many command line options to tailor its operation (you don't
have to write out a file if you don't want to). You need a C
compiler as it is a GNU style (GPL'ed) program distributed as source
code. A yahoo search for 'admesh' quickly revealed numerous sites
where you can find this program.
