Glossary of Code_Aster Abbreviations

(Please note some words in the Meaning column are partially capitalized to aid a
reader inunderstanding how the command was abbreviated. For example:
CREA_RESU is derived fromCREAte RESUlt. If you are going to add to or correct
this list, I humbly request that you kindlymaintain this convention, even though to
ones eyes it seems strange. I believe that to a non-Fr userit helps understand the
basis of the CodeAster commands. -JMB.)
