NAME

       phins - mbk physical instance

DESCRIPTION

       The  phins  structure is used to describe a instance belonging to a symbolic layout model,
       see phfig(3) for details.

       The  declarations  needed  to  work  on  phins  are   available   in   the   header   file
       "/labo/include/mph402.h", where '402' is the actual mbk version.

       The following C structure supports the description of the instance :
              typedef struct phins {
                 struct phins     ∗NEXT;
                 char             ∗INSNAME;
                 char             ∗FIGNAME;
                 long             XINS,YINS;
                 char             TRANSF;
                 struct ptype     ∗USER;
              } phins_list;

       NEXT                Pointer to the next instance in the list.

       FIGNAME             Model  of  the  instance.  This  gives  the name of the figure that is
                           currently beeing instanciated. The model may not be present in memory.

       NAME                Name of the instance. The instance is identified by its  name,  so  it
                           should be unique at a given hierarchical level.

       XINS, YINS          Coordinates  of  the lower left corner of the instance, after possible
                           geometrical operation.

       TRANSF              Contains the geometrical operations that should  be  performed  before
                           placing the instance. Eight legal values are allowed :

                           NOSYM               no operation

                           SYM_X               x becomes -x

                           SYM_Y               y becomes -y

                           SYMXY               x becomes -x and y becomes -y

                           ROT_P               rotates 90 degrees counter clockwise

                           ROT_M               rotates 90 degrees clockwise

                           SY_RP               x  becomes  -x  then  rotates  90  degrees counter
                                               clockwise

                           SY_RM               x becomes -x then rotates 90 degrees clockwise

       USER                Pointer to a ptype list, see ptype(3) for details, that is  a  general
                           purpose pointer used to share informations on the instance.

       Remark :            the phins structure does not contain any information about the size of
                           the  instance.  Neither  the  abutment  box  nor  the  connectors  are
                           available. The model must be loaded when such information is needed.
