NAME
       savephfig - save a physical figure on disk

SYNOPSYS
       #include "mpu.h"
       void savephfig(ptfig)
       phfig_list ∗ptfig;

PARAMETER
       ptfig               Pointer to the phfig to write on disk

DESCRIPTION
       savephfig writes on disk the contents of the figure pointer to by
       ptfig. All the figure lists are ran through, and the appropriate
       objects written, independently of the figure mode.
       The savephfig function in fact performs a call to a driver, choosen by
       the MBK_OUT_PH(1) environment variable. The directory in which the file
       is to be written is the one set by MBK_WORK_LIB(1).  See MBK_OUT_PH(1),
       MBK_WORK_LIB(1) and mbkenv(3) for details.

ERRORS
       "∗∗∗ mbk error ∗∗∗ not supported physical output format 'xxx'"
              The environment variable MBK_OUT_PH is not set to a legal
              physical format.
       "∗∗∗ mbk error ∗∗∗ savephfig : could not open file figname.ext"
              Either the directory or the file are write protected, so it's
              not possible to open figname.ext, where ext is the file format
              extension, for writting.

EXAMPLE
       #include "mpu.h"
       void save_na2_y()
       {
          savephfig(getphfig("na2_y"));
       }
