The Kohonen Update Function

A special update function ( Kohonen_Order) is also provided in SNNS. This function has to be used since it is the only one that takes care of the special ordering of units in the competitive layer. If another update is selected an ``Error: Dead units in the network'' may occur when propagating patterns.
