       ptype_list ∗pthead;
       long type;

       phfig_list ∗ptfig;
       char ∗name;
       int ∗x2, ∗y2;
       {
       phins_list ∗i = getphins(ptfig, name);
       ptype_list ∗p = getptype(i->USER, (long)PLACEABOX);
          ∗x2 = (num_list ∗)(p->DATA)->DATA;
          ∗y2 = (num_list ∗)(p->DATA)->NEXT->DATA;
