       bigvia - draws a non minimal via as a bunch of vias


       #include "mph.h"
       void ∗bigvia(figure, viatype, x, y, dx, dy)
       phfig_list ∗figure;
       char viatype;
       long x, y, dx, dy;


       figure              Pointer to the physical figure in the which vias must be put.

       viatype             Contact type to be put.

       x, y                Coordinate of the center of the bigvia.

       dx, dy              Maximun rectangle to be filled with vias.


       bigvia  draws  as  many  vias  as necessary to fill the rectangle defined by its dx and dy
       arguments.  The ``bigvia'' center is indicated with dx and dy, thus making  this  function
       much like addphvia.  The necessary segments are drawn to avoid having notches or other drc
       rules violated.
       This function is tipically used by routers when connecting two  non  minimal  wires,  like
       supplies or clocks.
       The values for drawing the via correctly, ie avoid drc violations, are taken from the idps
       set of rules, and are not changeable at run time.


              "*** mbk error *** bigvia impossible : negative values dx, dy in figure  figure  at
              (x, y)"
       If either dx or dy are negative, the function complains and exits.


       #include "mph.h"
       #define BigVia(x, y, dx, dy) \
          bigvia(WORK_PHFIG, CONT_VIA, x, y, dx, dy)
