NAME

       GENLIB_COPY_UP_REF - copy a physical reference from an instance in the current figure

SYNOPSYS

       #include <genlib.h>
       void GENLIB_COPY_UP_REF(refname, insname, newname)
       char ∗refname, ∗insname, ∗newname;

PARAMETERS

       refname             Name of the reference in the instance

       insname             Name of the instance in the which the reference is to be searched for

       newname             Name to be given to the reference in the current figure

DESCRIPTION

       COPY_UP_REF  adds  a reference in the current layout cell.  All the reference's attributes
       are copied from the first found reference called refname in  the  instance  insname.   The
       designer  should  avoid  to give to several refences the same name if he plans to use this
       function.  The new reference is given the name newname.  The main purpose of this function
       is  to  copy  a  reference  in  the upper hierarchical level, so it can be used as virtual
       connector, for the data-path router.  See dpr(1) for details.  layout.

ERRORS

       "GENLIB_COPY_UP_REF impossible : missing GENLIB_DEF_PHFIG"
              No figure has been yet specified by a call to DEF_PHFIG. So it  isn't  possible  to
              place  a  reference  inside  it.   you  must call DEF_PHFIG before any other layout
              action.
       "illegal getphins : instance insname does not exist"
              The instance called insname does not currently belong to the figure.
       "GENLIB_COPY_UP_REF impossible : reference refname does not exist"
              The reference refname does not exist in the model of the instance insname.

EXAMPLE

       #include <genlib.h>
       main()
       {
            /∗ Create a figure to work on  ∗/
            GENLIB_DEF_PHFIG("cell");
            GENLIB_PLACE("z2l_y", "r1", NOSYM, 23L, 54L);
            /∗ Put a reference ∗/
            GENLIB_COPY_UP_REF("mux0_s", "r1", "out_s");
            /∗ Save that on disk ∗/
            GENLIB_SAVE_PHFIG();
       }
