NAME

       GENLIB_LOINS - add a logical instance to the current figure

SYNOPSYS

       #include <genlib.h>
       void GENLIB_LOINS(model, instance, sig1, sig2, ..., sign, EOL);
       char ∗model, ∗instance;
       char ∗sig1, ∗sig2, ..., ∗sign;

PARAMETERS

       model               Name of the model to be logically instanciated

       instance            Name to be given to the new instance

       sig1, sig2, ..., sign
                           List  of  signals  to  be linked to the implicit connector list of the
                           instance

DESCRIPTION

       LOINS add a logical instance  in  the  actual  working  figure.   LOINS  uses  environment
       variables to choose the file format and the path to the file.
       MBK_IN_LO set up the input file format, the valid ones beeing :
              hns
              fne
              al
              alx
       MBK_WORK_LIB set up the output file path. Any valid unix path is ok.  LOINS look in memory
       and then, if not found, on disk for the figure modelname. This  is  due  to  the  need  to
       ensure consistency between the model and its ascociated instances.
       The  instance is added with the name instance, and each of the signals are connected to an
       instance connector. The connectors are implicitly matched from the order of the signal  on
       the  list.   This  order  is the one given in the netlist file, hns or al, or in the sclib
       documentation, for standard cell circuits.

ERRORS

       "GENLIB_LOINS impossible : missing GENLIB_DEF_LOFIG"
              No figure has been yet specified by a call to DEF_LOFIG. So it  isn't  possible  to
              add anything. you must call DEF_LOFIG before any other netlist call.
       "GENLIB_LOINS : Bad signal bus name"
              A signal, described under a bus form, has an illegal syntax.
       "Illegal addloins. Instance insname already exist in figure figname"
              An instance name must be unique in a given figure at a given hierachy level.
       "Illegal addloins. Instance model is the figure figname itself"
              A  figure  cannot  be  included  in  itself.  Be careful, the check is only made at
              current hierarchy level.
       "Illegal addloins. Connector number discrepancy  between  figure  modelname  and  instance
       insname in figure figname"
              The  number  of  connector  in  the  model  is  not  equal to the number of signals
              describing the connectivity during the LOINS call.

EXAMPLE

       #include <genlib.h>
       main()
       {
            /∗ Create a figure to work on  ∗/
            GENLIB_DEF_LOFIG("mycell");
            /∗ define interface  ∗/
            GENLIB_LOCON("i", INPUT, "sig1");
            GENLIB_LOCON("o", OUTPUT, "sig2");
            /∗ Place an instance ∗/
            GENLIB_LOINS("model","instance", "sig1", "sig2", EOL);
            /∗ Save all that on disk ∗/
            GENLIB_SAVE_LOFIG();
       }
