PHINS(3)              MBK PHYSICAL STRUCTURE DEFINITIONS              PHINS(3)



NAME
       phins - mbk physical instance

DESCRIPTION
       The phins structure is used to describe a instance belonging to a
       symbolic layout model, see phfig(3) for details.

       The declarations needed to work on phins are available in the header
       file "/labo/include/mph402.h", where '402' is the actual mbk version.

       The following C structure supports the description of the instance :
              typedef struct phins {
                 struct phins     ∗NEXT;
                 char             ∗INSNAME;
                 char             ∗FIGNAME;
                 long             XINS,YINS;
                 char             TRANSF;
                 struct ptype     ∗USER;
              } phins_list;

       NEXT                Pointer to the next instance in the list.

       FIGNAME             Model of the instance. This gives the name of the
                           figure that is currently beeing instanciated. The
                           model may not be present in memory.

       NAME                Name of the instance. The instance is identified by
                           its name, so it should be unique at a given
                           hierarchical level.

       XINS, YINS          Coordinates of the lower left corner of the
                           instance, after possible geometrical operation.

       TRANSF              Contains the geometrical operations that should be
                           performed before placing the instance. Eight legal
                           values are allowed :

                           NOSYM               no operation

                           SYM_X               x becomes -x

                           SYM_Y               y becomes -y

                           SYMXY               x becomes -x and y becomes -y

                           ROT_P               rotates 90 degrees counter
                                               clockwise

                           ROT_M               rotates 90 degrees clockwise

                           SY_RP               x becomes -x then rotates 90
                                               degrees counter clockwise

                           SY_RM               x becomes -x then rotates 90
                                               degrees clockwise

       USER                Pointer to a ptype list, see ptype(3) for details,
                           that is a general purpose pointer used to share
                           informations on the instance.

       Remark :            the phins structure does not contain any
                           information about the size of the instance. Neither
                           the abutment box nor the connectors are available.
                           The model must be loaded when such information is
                           needed.
