GENLIB_SAVE_LOFIG — save a netlist on disk

Synopsis

#include <genlib.h>
void GENLIB_SAVE_LOFIG();

Description

SAVE_LOFIG saves the current working figure previously definded by a DEF_LOFIG call. SAVE_LOFIG uses environment variables to choose the file format and the path to the file. MBK_OUT_LO set up the output file format, the valid ones being :

hns
fne
al
alx

you could for example do :

setenv MBK_OUT_LO al

MBK_WORK_LIB set up the output file path. Any valid unix path is ok.
for example :

setenv MBK_WORK_LIB ~fred/booth/genlib

SAVE_LOFIG doesn't look on disk for the figure cellname,  so be careful not to overwrite an existing file while saving.

Error

"GENLIB_SAVE_LOFIG impossible : missing GENLIB_DEF_LOFIG"

No figure has been yet specified by a call to DEF_LOFIG. So it isn't possible to save anything. you must call DEF_LOFIG before any other netlist call.

Example

#include <genlib.h>
main()
{
	/∗ Create a figure to work on  ∗/
	GENLIB_DEF_LOFIG("mycell");
	/∗ define interface  ∗/
	GENLIB_LOCON("i", INPUT, "sig1");
	GENLIB_LOCON("o", OUTPUT, "sig2");
	/∗ Place an instance ∗/
	GENLIB_LOINS("model","instance", "sig1", "sig2", EOL);
	/∗ Save all that on disk ∗/
	GENLIB_SAVE_LOFIG();
}
