Performs the function of selecting an object after entering solid (i.e., primitive) illuminate or object illuminate mode. In solid illuminate mode, this command selects the specific shape for editing. In object illuminate mode, this command selects the leaf object for the object path, then the user may use the mouse to select where along the object path the editing should be applied. In both modes,the ill command will only succeed if the specified obj_name is only referenced once in the displayed objects; otherwise a multiply referenced message will be displayed. If the ill command fails, the user must resort to either using the mouse to make the selection, or using aip and M 1 0 0.
The example shows the use of the ill command to select a specified object for editing.
