       This engine joins up to 10 separate fields of a type into a single  multiple-valued  field
       of the same type. The type of the input fields can be any subclass of SoMField The type is
       specified   when   an   instance   of    the    class    is    created.    For    example,
       SoConcatenate(SoMFFloat::getClassTypeId())   creates an engine that concatenates floating-
       point values.

       The input field is a 10-element array, where each element can be connected to  single-  or
       multiple-valued fields.  All the values in the input are concatenated together to form one
       multiple-value field. For example, if input[0] contains 10 values and input[1] contains  3
       values, the output will contain 13 values.

       Note  that,  unlike  the  output  of  most engines, output is a pointer. Note also that by
       default input does not contain any values, and no value is output from the engine.


     <inputType>         input[10]


     (<outputType>)      output


                         SoConcatenate(SoType inputType)
          Constructor. The argument specifies the type of values to concatenate.


       Concatenate {
          type                <inputType>
          input0              []
          input1              []
          input2              []
          input3              []
          input4              []
