Detailed Description

       This set of classes is a basic implementation of State Chart XML. It is not complete, nor
       is it necessary conformant to those parts it implements.

       Currently Coin uses SCXML for managing 3D viewer user interaction (the non-model-
       interaction part) - the examiner navigation mode in layman terms.

       The Draft Specification for SCXML is at http://www.w3.org/TR/scxml/.

       Since:
           Coin 3.0

       State Chart XML The ScXML part of Coin is a basic, non-conformant, partial implementation
       of State Chart XML, based on the W3C Working Draft 16 May 2008 of SCXML
       http://www.w3.org/TR/2008/WD-scxml-20080516/. The latest version should be at
       http://www.w3.org/TR/scxml/. Read that document for a basic understanding how SCXML
       documents should be constructed.

       Coin uses SCXML for setting up its navigation systems, to be able to remove hardcoded
       logic for user navigation and externalize it into XML files. This makes it easy for users
       to customize the navigation system for their own purposes.

       Unsupported Items:

       · The <parallel> element is not supported as intended with parallel states. Coin will just
         treat it as an ordinary <state> element for now. Parallel states is not high up on the
         priority list, so expect this to be handled after a lot of other functionality is in
         place.

       · The <datamodel>-related part of the specification is not fully supported.

       · The 'target' attribute in the <transition> element can only identify a single state
         currently, not multiple as you would have to when having support for <parallel> elements
         (which we don't have).

       · The virtual state elements like <history> and <anchor> are just implemented as dummy
         states for now and do not do anything in relation to what they should actually do.

       For learning more about how ScXML is implemented and used in Coin, take a look at
       $COINDIR/scxml/navigation/examiner.xml (or in the Coin source directory,
       data/scxml/navigation/examiner.xml) for an example of how an SCXML system for camera
       navigation looks, and look at the source files in src/navigation/ for the C++ counterparts
       to the same SCXML navigation system.
