loins — mbk logical instance

Description

The loins is used to describe an instance of the logical view of a figure.

The declarations needed to work on loins are available in the header file "/labo/include/mlo404.h", where '404' is the actual mbk version.

The following C structure supports the description of the logical instance :

typedef struct loins {
	struct loins	∗NEXT;
	struct locon	∗LOCON;
	char	∗INSNAME;
	char	∗FIGNAME;
	struct ptype	∗USER;
} loins_list;

Pointer to the next loins of the list.

INSNAME

Local name of the instance. It identifies the instance at a given hierarchical level, so it should unique. When working on both layout and netlist views of a cell, instance names should be the same on each representation.

FIGNAME

Name of the model of the instantiated cell.

LOCON

Pointer to the head of the list of connectors of the instance. Consistency between the connectors of the instance and the connectors of its model on disk is not ensured by the parsers, because a model local to the file being parsed is used, not the possible model on disk. See locon(3) for details.

USER

Pointer to a ptype list, see ptype(3) for details, that is a general purpose pointer used to share information on the instance.
