Returns a unique integer for use as a tag.
Int32 gentag( )
INTEGER*4 FUNCTION GENTAG
The gentag subroutine generates a unique 31-bit integer number for use as a tag. Tags must be unique within an object. Although the gentag subroutine generates unique tags, if a tag is defined later with the same value, the first tag is lost.
The istag subroutine can affirm the uniqueness of a tag number.
Note: This editing subroutine itself cannot be added to a display list.
