GENLIB_SAVE_PHFIG

GENLIB_SAVE_PHFIG — save a layout on disk

Synopsis

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

Description

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

cp
ap

you could for example do :

setenv MBK_OUT_PH ap

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

Error

"GENLIB_SAVE_PHFIG impossible : missing GENLIB_DEF_PHFIG"

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

Example

#include <genlib.h>
main()
{
	/∗ Create a figure to work on  ∗/
	GENLIB_DEF_PHFIG("mycell");
	/∗ Place an instance ∗/
	GENLIB_PLACE("mymodel","firstinstance", NOSYM,0L,0L);
	/∗ Save all that on disk ∗/
	GENLIB_SAVE_PHFIG();
}
