After one has described the net one must press to generate the net in SNNS. The weights of the links are set to the default value . Therefore one must initialize the net before one starts learning. The net created has the default name SNNS_NET.net. If a net already exists in SNNS a warning is issued before it is replaced. If the network generated happens to have two units with more than one connection in the same direction between them then SNNS sends the error message ``Invalid Target''.
