addlomodel.3alc man page

addlomodel — create a tempotary logical model and add it to a list

Synopsis

#include "mlo.h"
lofig_list ∗addlomodel(model, name)
lofig_list ∗model;
char ∗name;

Parameters

model

Pointer to the head of a model list

name

Name of the model to be created

Description

addlomodel creates a new lofig_list element and adds it to the front of the list pointed to by model, and becomes itself the list head.
The addlomodel function is mosty used to create a temporary list of lofig in order to represent the "in file" instances' models. In fact, all the file format used with mbk have the notion of models local to files, so they are not figure, but are temporarly used to create instance connectors, for example. For details on the structure, see lofig(3).

Return Value

addlomodel returns a pointer to the new head of model list.

Error

"∗∗∗ mbk error ∗∗∗ addlomodel impossible : model name already exists"

The model, not the figure, is already present in the model list pointed to by model, and since a model should be unique, this can't be.

Example

#include "mut.h"
#include "mlo.h"
void add_model(name)
char ∗name;
{
	MODEL = addlomodel(MODEL, name);
}
