NAME
       addlomodel - create a tempotary logical model and add it to a list

SYNOPSYS
       #include "mlo.h"
       lofig_list ∗addlomodel(model, name)
       lofig_list ∗model;
       char ∗name;

PARAMETERS
       model               Pointer to the head of a model list

       name                Name of the model to be created

DESCRIPTION
       addlomodel creates a new lofig_list element and adds it to the front of
       the list pointed to by model, and becomes itself the list head.
       The addlomodel function is mosty used to create a temporary list of lofig
       in order to represent the "in file" instances' models.  In fact, all the
       file format used with mbk have the notion of models local to files, so
       they are not figure, but are temporarly used to create instance
       connectors, for example.  For details on the structure, see lofig(3).

RETURN VALUE
       addlomodel returns a pointer to the new head of model list.

ERROR
       "∗∗∗ mbk error ∗∗∗ addlomodel impossible : model name already exists"
              The model, not the figure, is already present in the model list
              pointed to by model, and since a model should be unique, this
              can't be.

EXAMPLE
       #include "mut.h"
       #include "mlo.h"
       void add_model(name)
       char ∗name;
       {
          MODEL = addlomodel(MODEL, name);
       }
