Link Field Substitution Macros

If you want to provide access to data concerning connectors in the model, particularly Associations and Generalizations, you can use the 'Link field substitution' macros. The macro names are in Camel casing. Macros that represent checkboxes return a value of 'T' if the box is selected; otherwise the value is empty.
