SYNOPSYS
       #include "mph.h"
       phins_list ∗getphins(ptfig, insname)
       phfig_list ∗ptfig;
       char ∗insname;

PARAMETERS
       ptfig               Pointer to the figure in which the instance should
                           be seeked

       insname             Name of the instance

DESCRIPTION
       getphins looks in the list of instances of the physical model pointed
       to by ptfig for a instance identified by its insname.

RETURN VALUE
       getphins returns a pointer to the instance that matches the insname.

ERROR
       "∗∗∗ mbk error ∗∗∗ illegal getphins instance insname doesn't exist in
       figure ptfig->NAME"
              No instance is called insname in the figure.

EXAMPLE
       #include "mph.h"
       phins_list ∗exist(figname, insname)
       char ∗figname, ∗insname;
       {
          return getphins(getphfig(figname), insname);
       }
