;     color: in, optional, type=varies
;         Set this keyword to the color (color table index, 24-bit value, or color name) 
;         of the color desired. 
;     names: in, optional, type=boolean, default=0
;         If this keyword is set, the function returns the names of the symbols allowed.
;         The index number of the name is its symbol number.
;     thick: in, optional, type=float, default=1.0
;         Set this keyword to the thickness desired. Default is 1. 
;          
; :Examples:
; 
;    To use with normal IDL routines::
;       Plot, findgen(11), PSYM=cgSymCat(theSymbol)
;
;    To connect symbols with lines, use a negative value for the PSYM keyword::
;       Plot, findgen(11), PSYM=-cgSymCat(theSymbol)
;       
;    To use with Coyote Library routines, you can call cgSymCat indirectly::
;       cgPlot, findgne(11), PSYM=16, SYMCOLOR='dodger blue'

;
; :History:
;    Change History::
;       Written by David W. Fanning, 2 September 2006. Loosely based on the
;          program MC_SYMBOL introduced on the IDL newsgroup 1 September 2006,
;          and MPI_PLOTCONFIG__DEFINE from the Coyote Library.
;       Modified to allow PSYM=8 and PSYM=10 to have their normal meanings. This shifted 
;       previous symbols by two values from their old meanings. For example, an hourglass 
;       went from symbol number 19 to 21. 2 October 2006. DWF. 
;       Whoops! Added two symbols but forgot to change limits to allow for them. 4 May 2007. DWF.
;       Added THICK keyword. 21 Aug 2007. DWF.
;       Added COLOR keyword and made THICK keyword apply to all symbols. 11 Nov 2008. DWF.
;       If you are using USERSYM, the "color" can get "stuck" on the last color used to draw
;          a symbol. To "unstick" the color,  you have to call USERSYM without a color keyword
;          before calling it again with a color keyword. This is, without a doubt, the strangest
;          bug I've ever seen in IDL! 20 June 2012. DWF.
;       Changed the way I "unstick" the color from calling USERSYM to calling SYMCAT. This
;          avoids a problem in changing the symbol when SYMCAT is used (unnecessarily) to pass
;          a symbol into Coyote Graphics programs. 9 July 2012. DWF.
;       Added the ability (via Jack Saba) to ask for symbols by name. 17 July 2012. DWF.
;       Added the ability to ask for the color by name. 17 July 2012. DWF.
;       Renamed to cgSYMCAT from SYMCAT. 17 July 2012. DWF.
;       The previous problem with USERSYM colors "sticking" turned out to be a problem
;           with cgGraphicsKeywords, so I removed previous "fix". 18 July 2012. DWF.
;       Modified the program to allow a "negative" string to be used as the symbol name
;           (e.g., PSYM="-star"). 30 July 2012. DWF.
;       Modified to use 36 points in circle, rather than 72. 10 May 2013. DWF.
;       Fixed a problem with using parentheses, rather than square brackets. 15 Dec 2014. DWF.
