GENLIB_FLATTEN_LOFIG.3alc man page

GENLIB_FLATTEN_LOFIG — flatten an instance in the current netlist figure

Synopsis

#include <genlib.h>
void GENLIB_FLATTEN_LOFIG(insname,concat)
char ∗insname;
char concat;

Parameters

insname

Name of the instance to be flattened

concat

Indicate whether or not to concatenate instance name to instance' objects name

Description

FLATTEN_LOFIG inserts the contents of an instance, but its connectors, in the current figure, and then destroys the instance.
The concat parameter may take two values:

YES

to concatenate object name with instance names.

NO

to copy object names.

In most case, the concat value must be YES, in order to warranty the unicity of names in the figure. It may otherwise fail, because the function would try to add in the current figure some object with an already existing name.

Example

#include <genlib.h>
main()
{
	/∗ Create a figure to work on  ∗/
	GENLIB_DEF_LOFIG("mycell");
	.
	.
	.
	/∗ Place an instance ∗/
	GENLIB_LOINS("model","instance", "sig1", "sig2", EOL);
	/∗ flatten an instance ∗/
	GENLIB_FLATTEN_LOFIG("instance", YES);
	/∗ Save all that on disk ∗/
	GENLIB_SAVE_LOFIG();
}
