    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Establishes those functions of the Computer Graphics Interface concerned with Virtual Device management, coordinate space control, and error control. The functionality incorporated is concerned with the management of the graphics image and the interrelationship of the graphical and non-graphical parts of the interface. This part should be read in conjunction with ISO/IEC 9636-1 and other parts.
