NAME

       locon - mbk logical connector

DESCRIPTION

       The  locon is used to describe a connector of the logical view     of a figure. Connectors
       are describing the cell interface, and are the  link  between  its  physical  and  logical
       views, so the names must be the same.

       The   declarations   needed   to   work   on  locon  are  available  in  the  header  file
       "/labo/include/mlo404.h", where '404' is the actual mbk version.

       The following C structure supports the description of the logical connector :
              typedef struct locon {
                 struct locon     ∗NEXT;
                 char             ∗NAME;
                 struct losig     ∗SIG;
                 void             ∗ROOT;
                 char             DIRECTION;
                 char             TYPE;
                 struct ptype     ∗USER;
              } locon_list;

       NEXT                Pointer to the next locon of the list.

       NAME                Name of the connector. It  identifies  the  connector,  so  it  should
                           unique  in  a  given  logical figure. A logical connector with a given
                           name correspond to the physical connector or connectors of this name.

       SIG                 Pointer to the signal linked to the  connector.  This  signal  is,  of
                           course, unique. See losig(3) for details.

       ROOT                Pointer  to  the  object  it  belongs  to. This object may be either a
                           lofig, or a loins, depending  on  the  type  of  the  connector.   See
                           lofig(3) and loins for details.

       DIRECTION           This indicates the way of the information going through the connector.
                           Six directions are legal :

                           IN                  input

                           OUT                 output

                           INOUT               input and output

                           UNKNOWN             no information is available

                           TRISTATE            tristate output

                           TRANSCV             tristate output and input

       TYPE                Character indicating if  the  connector  belongs  to  a  model  or  an
                           instance. It can take two values :

                           EXTERNAL            for figure connectors

                           INTERNAL            for instance connectors

                           The  TYPE  is  needed to appropriatly cast the ROOT field, and must be
                           approriatly filled by the parsers. A misuse of it  may  cause  strange
                           behaviours.

       USER                Pointer  to  a  ptype  list,  see ptype for details, that is a general
                           purpose pointer used to share informations on the connector.
