       Each  class  derived  from SoSField begins with an SoSF prefix and contains one value of a
       particular type. Each has setValue() and getValue() methods that are  used  to  change  or
       access  this  value.  In addition, some field classes have extra convenience routines that
       allow values to be set or retrieved in other related formats (see below).

       In addition to setValue(), all single-value fields overload the "=" assignment operator to
       set  the  field value from the correct datatype or from another field instance of the same

       The value of a single-value field is written to file in a format dependent  on  the  field
       type; see the subclass man pages for details.

       A  field that is ignored has a tilde (~) either in place of the value (if the actual value
       is the default) or after it (otherwise).


     static SoType       getClassTypeId()
          Return the type identifier for this field class.
