NAME
       addphvia - create a physical via


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"
       phvia_list ∗addphvia(ptfig, viatype, x, y)
       phfig_list ∗ptfig;
       char viatype;
       long x, y;

PARAMETERS
       ptfig               Pointer to the figure in which the via should be
                           added

       viatype             Contact type

       x, y                Coordinates of the center of the via.

DESCRIPTION
       addphvia creates a new via whose center is at the given coordinates,
       and adds it to the list of vias pointed to by ptfig->PHVIA. The new via
       is added in front of the list, and becomes itself the list head.
       The parameters viatype, x and y fill respectivly the TYPE, XVIA and
       YVIA fields of the phvia structure.
       For a list of valid viatypes, and details on the structure, see
       phvia(3).

RETURN VALUE
       addphvia returns a pointer to the newly created via.

ERRORS
       "∗∗∗ mbk error ∗∗∗ illegal addphvia viatype : viatype at x, y"
              The via type is not a predefined contact. For a list of legal
              via types, see phvia(3).

EXAMPLE
       #include "mph.h"
       phvia_list ∗via_dup(pfd, pfs) /∗ duplicate vias ∗/
       phfig_list ∗pfd, ∗pfs;
       {
       phvia_list ∗pv;
          for (pv = pfs->phvia; pv != NULL; pv = pv->NEXT)
             addphvia(pfd, pv->TYPE, ps->XVIA, ps->YVIA);
          return pfd->PHVIA;
       }
