Closing The Database

When an IGES command is done, it calls dbclose(), which releases all the temporary files used to simulate the database. Since changes to the database are passed to AutoCAD as they occur, there's no need to pass any information in the temporary files back to AutoCAD at this point.

Changes to system variables made by IGESIN should be passed back to AutoCAD at this time. This is not presently done.
