Enum  Description 

ILcdTimeBounds.Boundedness 
Describes the boundedness of an object:
BOUNDED denotes that the object is bounded:
it has a time setting;
UNBOUNDED denotes that the object is unbounded:
it has always existed, or it will always exist;
UNDEFINED denotes that the object is undefined:
it has no time setting, or it is not (yet) initialized. 
Elementary shapes like points and boxes are readonly. Subpackages of this package provide extended interfaces that also allow to change the shapes (they become 'movable' in two or three dimensions). The default readonly shapes can be more efficient, as they can be safely shared without risk of unwanted sideeffects. A bounding box (which is a shape in its own right) is a typical example: a shape can return its readonly bounding box without having to worry about other objects changing it.
Specific implementations of shapes make a distinction between different topologies, e.g. a cartesian topology with xyz coordinates or a spherical topology with longitude/latitude coordinates. Although the implementations are different, the classes can be used in the same way, thru their interfaces.
This package also contains abstract utility classes. These classes provide the basis for implementations of shapes that are essentially twodimensional, but that can also be used as threedimensional shapes with the zcoordinate fixed to 0.
