GENLIB_COPY_UP_REF

GENLIB_COPY_UP_REF — copy a physical reference from an instance in the current figure

Synopsis

#include <genlib.h>
void GENLIB_COPY_UP_REF(refname, insname, newname)
char ∗refname, ∗insname, ∗newname;

Parameters

refname

Name of the reference in the instance

insname

Name of the instance in the which the reference is to be searched for

newname

Name to be given to the reference in the current figure

Description

COPY_UP_REF adds a reference in the current layout cell. All the reference's attributes are copied from the first found reference called refname in the instance insname. The designer should avoid to give to several refences the same name if he plans to use this function. The new reference is given the name newname. The main purpose of this function is to copy a reference in the upper hierarchical level, so it can be used as virtual connector, for the data-path router. See dpr(1) for details. layout.

Errors

"GENLIB_COPY_UP_REF 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 reference inside it. you must call DEF_PHFIG before any other layout action.

"illegal getphins : instance insname does not exist"

The instance called insname does not currently belong to the figure.

"GENLIB_COPY_UP_REF impossible : reference refname does not exist"

The reference refname does not exist in the model of the instance insname.

Example

#include <genlib.h>
main()
{
	/∗ Create a figure to work on  ∗/
	GENLIB_DEF_PHFIG("cell");
	GENLIB_PLACE("z2l_y", "r1", NOSYM, 23L, 54L);
	/∗ Put a reference ∗/
	GENLIB_COPY_UP_REF("mux0_s", "r1", "out_s");
	/∗ Save that on disk ∗/
	GENLIB_SAVE_PHFIG();
}
