ADDPHFIG(3)                 MBK PHYSICAL FUNCTIONS                 ADDPHFIG(3)



NAME
       addphfig - create a new physical cell model


ORIGIN
       This software belongs to the  ALLIANCE CAD SYSTEM developed by the ASIM
       team at LIP6 laboratory of Université Pierre et Marie CURIE, in Paris,
       France.

SYNOPSYS
       #include "mph.h"
       phfig_list ∗addphfig(figname)
       char ∗figname;

PARAMETER
       figname             Name of the figure to be created

DESCRIPTION
       addphfig creates a new figure called figname and adds it to the list of
       figure in memory. The new figure is added in front of the list, and
       becomes itself the list head. No check is performed to see if a figure
       with the figname exists on disk. If it is the case, the preexisting
       file will be erased while saving.
       The fields PHCON, PHINS, PHSEG, PHVIA, PHREF and USER are set to NULL.
       The fields XAB1,  YAB1,  XAB2,  XAB2 are set to 0L.
       The field MODE is set to 'A'.
       The field NEXT points to the previous head of list.

RETURN VALUE
       addphfig returns a pointer to the newly created figure.

ERRORS
       "∗∗∗ mbk error ∗∗∗ illegal addphfig figure figname already exists"
              There is already a figure called figname in memory, so it's
              impossible to give this name to a cell to be created.

EXAMPLE
       #include "mph.h"
       phfig_list ∗get_the_fig(name)
       char ∗name;
       {
       phfig_list ∗pt, ∗fill_fig(/∗ phfig_list ∗ ∗/);
          /∗ scan figure list ∗/
          for (pt = HEAD_PHFIG; pt; pt = pt->NEXT)
             if (!strcmp(pt->NAME, figname))
                break;
          return pt ? pt : fill_fig(addphfig(figname));
       }
