GENLIB_COPY_UP_ALL_CON — copy all physical connectors of an instance face in the current figure

Synopsis

#include <genlib.h>
void GENLIB_COPY_UP_ALL_CON(face, insname, concatenate)
char face, concatenate;
char ∗insname;

Parameters

face

Face of the instance

insname

Name of the instance the connector belongs to

concatenate

Indicates whether or not to concatenate instance connectors names with instance name

Description

COPY_UP_ALL_CON copies all instance connectors of the face face of the placed instance called insname into the current layout. The concatenate argument may take two values:

YES

then the resulting name of a connector in the current figure is the concatenation of the insname and the conname. It warranties the unicity of name at the figure level, and is to be used most of the time.

NO

implies a direct copy of the connector name. The user must take care of the unicity of connector name by itself.
Two behaviour are expected, depending on each of the instance connectors location regarding the abutment box of the current figure.

Connector on the abutment box

The figure connector is place right over the instance connector. The single connector is duplicated.

Connector inside the abutment box

The instance connector face is computed in the figure, and then, the connector is duplicated on the given face, at the right coordinates for this face. Then a wire is drawn between the instance connector and the figure connector in the connector layer.

Errors

"GENLIB_COPY_UP_ALL_CON impossible : missing GENLIB_DEF_PHFIG"

No figure has been yet specified by a call to DEF_PHFIG. So it isn't possible to place a connector inside it. you must call DEF_PHFIG before any other layout action.

"*** genlib error *** GENLIB_COPY_UP_ALL_CON impossible : connector conname face face of instance insname, current figure doesn't exist"

No connector matches both the conname and the face arguments.

Example

#include <genlib.h>
main()
{
	/∗ Create a figure to work on  ∗/
	GENLIB_DEF_PHFIG("cell");
	.
	.
	GENLIB_PLACE_LEFT("gaer0_f", "insN", SYMXY);
	.
	.
	GENLIB_DEF_AB(0L, 0L, 0L, 0L);
	/∗ Copy all connectors ∗/
	GENLIB_COPY_UP_ALL_CON(NORTH, "insN", YES);
	/∗ Save that on disk ∗/
	GENLIB_SAVE_PHFIG();
}
