About years in the past, whereas attending another foreign criteria assembly, some of the assembly individuals have been discussing the software and applicability of the factors we have been designing. finally, if criteria are usually not used, and used successfully, why are we spending all this time and cash designing them? the last word attempt of the software of desktop criteria is the variety of implementations which are built and the variety of end-users that effectively use those inside their very own software. The variety of implementations is said to the standard of a regular simply because proprietors can't produce right implementations with out transparent, specific and unambiguous semantics in the average. The variety of clients of implementations of the criteria is a good higher degree of luck of the normal simply because clients will in simple terms buy those implementations in the event that they are worthy for his or her functions. "How may perhaps we ascertain even if portraits criteria are useful?" we requested ourselves. " Let's ask either implementors and clients concerning the reports they have had with our criteria. allow them to let us know in regards to the successes and the issues in addition. " therefore, an concept was once born - the belief of a chain of workshops, each dedicated to the usability of a unique special effects usual. the single factor left to do in making plans this workshop used to be to decide on the perfect average to function the point of interest of the 1st workshop. there have been just a couple of practicable candidates.

Example text

There is a need for page utilization and font information at interpretation. A need for predefmed bundles is also identified. The experience of Novagraphics in using the CGM as a metafile for GKS is described by Tucker and Heather. There are problems when the standards do not fit closely together to give a straightforward mapping. The problems of the CGM/GKS mapping are described in the paper. The authors recognize that some of these problems are being resolved in ISO through the extended metafile work.

The software will be freely available to the universities at the end of the project. It is hoped that its wide use will encourage other suppliers to provide CGM generators and interpreters to support the CGM. The software written by the project will also be available to software suppliers to use. Negotiations have already taken place with the CAD Centre Ltd of Cambridge who see the CGM as a means of sharing ftles between their various software packages (including Gino-F) and between their software and other packages.

Similarly, it was expected by the designers of both GKS and CGM that there would be a reasonable "fit" between the two standards, so that CGM could serve as a true GKS metafile. It is the purpose of this paper to explore this relationship in detail, pointing out where there is a good match, and where the fit is less than ideal. The analysis is based on experience in implementing CGM as a component of NOVA *GKS, a proprietary implementation of the Graphical Kernel System. To date, NOVA *GKS supports only the binary encoding of CGM.
