About years in the past, whereas attending another overseas criteria assembly, some of the assembly contributors have been discussing the software and applicability of the factors we have been designing. in any case, if criteria will not be used, and used successfully, why are we spending all this time and cash designing them? the last word attempt of the software of laptop criteria is the variety of implementations which are constructed and the variety of end-users that effectively use those inside of their very own software. The variety of implementations is expounded to the standard of a customary simply because proprietors can't produce right implementations with out transparent, detailed and unambiguous semantics in the average. The variety of clients of implementations of the criteria is a good better degree of luck of the normal simply because clients will in basic terms buy those implementations in the event that they are beneficial for his or her purposes. "How may possibly we ensure even if images criteria are useful?" we requested ourselves. " Let's ask either implementors and clients concerning the stories 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 used to be born - the assumption of a chain of workshops, every one dedicated to the usability of a unique special effects general. the single factor left to do in making plans this workshop was once to decide on the right typical to function the point of interest of the 1st workshop. there have been just a couple of possible candidates.

1 Background Wang Laboratories is a premier supplier of Word Processing and Data Processing computer systems: Since 1985, Wang has provided business graphics and integrated text and graphics processing packages to the general office automation marketplace. The needs of the marketplace at that time were fairly simple and straightforward. Customers needed to get their financial and other data out of spreadsheet data bases, converted into business graphs, and ultimately, integrated into documents.

Computer graphics standards are also seen as having relevance in the university community in alleviating the duplication of work which often occurs. Implementation of a version of OKS (OKS-UK [4] written at the Rutherford Laboratory) is being carried out across a wide range of machine types. It is hoped that software will be developed to sit on top of this functional standard. Work has also commenced at Manchester University to extend this to support the OKS-3D standard. The Computer Oraphics Metafile (COM) also is considered to have benefits for the University community.

3 CGM Display To render the CGM, a special application process called the CGM Despooler Service Module invokes the CGM Interpreter Service Module to retrieve the metafile. The Despooler Service Module then reconstructs and translates the metafile picture into the appropriate format for the particular rendering device. The Despooler Service Module consists of approximately 200 FORTRAN77 subroutines. These subroutines are further subdivided into functional layers, called shells. The Device-Independent Shell invokes the Interpreter Serv:ice Module and receives the metafile data.
