incatalogfeed — test if cell belongs to the catalog file

Synopsis

#include "mut.h"
int incatalogfeed(figname)
char ∗figname;

Parameter

figname

Name of the cell to be checked

Description

incatalogfeed checks a cell represented by its figname being present in the catalog file with the 'F' attribut. This means that the cell is a feed through, and does not have a logical equivalent representation while being physicaly used.
This information is mostly needed by routers, since "logical feed through" has no design meaning.
The catalog is the sum of all the catalogs of the cells libraries specified in the MBK_CATA_LIB(1) and MBK_WORK_LIB(1). The catalogs of the MBK_CATA_LIB(1) are the files called CATAL, and the MBK_WORK_LIB(1) is by default CATAL but can be changed to MBK_CATAL_NAME(1).

Return Value

incatalogfeed returns 0 if the cell does not belong to the catalog with the 'F' attribut,  a value different from 0 if it does.

Example

#include "mut.h"
char ∗tell_if_incatalogfeed(name)
char ∗name;
{
	return incatalogfeed(name) ? "Jawohl, mein Herr" : "Nein, danke";
}
