   31 Functional Details #!N #!N This module creates a glyph, or representation, 
   32 for each data value in a data field (  #!F-adobe-times-bold-r-normal--18*   data 
   33 #!EF ). For data that are dependent on positions, a glyph 
   34 is placed at the corresponding position. For data that are dependent 
   35 on connections, a glyph is placed at the center of the 
   36 corresponding connection element. #!N #!N The Glyph module differs from AutoGlyph 
   37 in its interpretation of the  #!F-adobe-times-bold-r-normal--18*   scale #!EF parameter. With Glyph, 
   38 you can specify a multiplication factor that is applied to each 
   39 data value to obtain the size of the glyph in world 
   40 units. With AutoGlyph, the scaling is relative to the default glyph 
   41 size. #!N #!N To create sphere glyphs with a radius equal 
   42 to the data value, set  #!F-adobe-times-bold-r-normal--18*   scale #!EF to 1 and 
   43 both  #!F-adobe-times-bold-r-normal--18*   ratio #!EF and  #!F-adobe-times-bold-r-normal--18*   min #!EF to 0. To 
   44 create arrow glyphs with length equal to the magnitude of the 
   45 data value, set  #!F-adobe-times-bold-r-normal--18*   scale #!EF to 1. #!N #!N For 
   46 descriptions of the parameters, see  #!Lautogly,dxall773 h AutoGlyph  #!EL  . #!N #!N Components #!N 
   47 #!N Creates new "positions" and "connections" components. In the case of 
   48 a 3-D glyph, a "normals" component is added for shading purposes. 
   49 All components that match the dependency of the "data" component are 
   50 propagated to the output, all others are not. If the input 
   51 has "binormals" and "tangent" components, they are not propagated to the 
   52 output. #!N #!N Example Visual Programs #!CForestGreen #!N #!N  #!F-adobe-courier-bold-r-normal--18*   #!N
