[tex2html_wrap5946] [GENERIC FUNCTION]
Set AFL global state to new-state. The type of new-state determines which component is set. Each component subspace provides a method on this function to perform the necessary actions when its state is set.The following subsections document the different component subspaces of AFL. Each component subspace provides methods on the generic functions corresponding to the AFL assignment statements. For the sake of brevity, we will not document each of the individual methods.
