// .NAME vtkProcessObject - abstract class specifies interface for visualization filters
// .SECTION Description
// vtkProcessObject is an abstract object that specifies behavior and
// interface of visualization network process objects (sources, filters,
// mappers). Source objects are creators of visualization data; filters
// input, process, and output visualization data; and mappers transform data
// into another form (like rendering primitives or write data to a file).
// vtkProcessObject fires events for Start and End events before and after
// object execution (via Execute()). These events can be used for any purpose
// (e.g., debugging info, highlighting/notifying user interface, etc.)
// Another event, Progress, can be observed. Some filters fire this
// event periodically during their execution. The use is similar to that of
// Start and End events. Filters may also check their AbortExecute
// flag to determine whether to prematurely end their execution.
// An important feature of subclasses of vtkProcessObject is that it is
// possible to control the memory-management model (i.e., retain output
// versus delete output data). If enabled the ReleaseDataFlag enables the
// deletion of the output data once the downstream process object finishes
// processing the data (please see text).
