NAME

       loadphfig - load a new physical cell model from disk

SYNOPSYS

       #include "mph.h"
       void loadphfig(ptfig, figname, mode)
       phfig_list ∗ptfig;
       char ∗figname;
       char mode;

PARAMETERS

       ptfig               Pointer to an allocated but empty phfig

       figname             Name of the figure to be loaded

       mode                Loading mode

DESCRIPTION

       loadphfig  fills  the  phfig  pointed  to by ptfig with the contents of a disk file called
       figname. The loading mode may be either 'A', then the entire content  is  parsed,  or  'P'
       then  only  connectors, abutment box, and through routes are loaded, or 'C', that finishes
       to fill an already loaded figure in 'P' mode, in order to have it all in memory. This last
       mode allows to keep the same ptfig pointer when reaccessing the same file.
       The  loadphfig  function  in fact performs a call to a parser, choosen by the MBK_IN_PH(1)
       environment variable. The directories seached for the  file  are  first  the  one  set  by
       MBK_WORK_LIB(1)  and  then,  in the described order, the ones set by MBK_CATA_LIB(1).  See
       MBK_IN_PH(1), MBK_WORK_LIB(1), MBK_CATA_LIB(1) and mbkenv(3) for details.

ERRORS

       Some errors resulting from a call to loadphfig are due to the parsers, and are prefixed by
       the parser format (pf).
       "∗∗∗ mbk error ∗∗∗ not supported physical input format 'xxx'"
              The environment variable MBK_IN_PH is not set to a legal physical format.
       "∗∗∗ mbk error ∗∗∗ pfloadphfig : could not open file figname"
              No  file called figname.ext, where ext is the file format extension, has been found
              in the directories set by the environment.
       "∗∗∗ mbk error ∗∗∗ pfloadphfig : syntax error line x parsing figname.ext"
              Either the file has been corrupted and its syntax is not legal, or there is  a  bug
              in the given parser.

EXAMPLE

       #include "mph.h"
       phfig_list ∗get_the_phfig(figname, mode)
       char ∗figname;
       char mode;
       {
       phfig_list ∗pt;
          for (pt = HEAD_PHFIG; pt; pt = pt->NEXT) /∗ scan figure list ∗/
             if (!strcmp(pt->NAME, figname))
                break;
          if (!pt) { /∗ figure doesn't exist ∗/
             pt = addphfig(figname);
             pt->MODE = mode == 'A' ? mode : 'P';
             loadphfig(pt, figname, pt->MODE);
             return pt;
          }
          if (ptfig->MODE != 'A') { /∗ figure exists interface only ∗/
             if (mode == 'A') {
                pt->MODE = 'A';
                loadphfig(pt, figname, 'C');
                return pt;
             } else
                return pt;
          } else /∗ figure exists interface and body ∗/
             return pt;
       }
