GENLIB_COPY_UP_CON_FACE — copy a physical connector from an instance in the current figure

Synopsis

#include <genlib.h>
void GENLIB_COPY_UP_CON_FACE(face, conname, insname, newname)
long index;
char ∗insname;
char ∗conname;
char ∗newname;

Parameters

face

Connector face in the instance

conname

Name of the connector in the instance model

insname

Name of the instance the connector belongs to

newname

Name to be given to the connector in the current figure

Description

COPY_UP_CON_FACE copies a instance connector into the current layout figure, and gives to the new connector the name newname. The face and conname arguments are not suffiscient for non ambiguiously identify a single connector. So, if more than one connector matches these arguments, the behaviour described below is applied on all of them.
Two behaviour are expected, depending on the instance connector 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_CON_FACE 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_CON_FACE 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);
	/∗ Put a connector ∗/
	GENLIB_COPY_UP_CON_FACE("i0", 1, "insN", "inz0");
	/∗ Save that on disk ∗/
	GENLIB_SAVE_PHFIG();
}
