NAME

       GENLIB_COPY_UP_SEG - copy a physical segment from an instance in the current figure

SYNOPSYS

       #include <genlib.h>
       void GENLIB_COPY_UP_SEG(oldname, insname, newname)
       char ∗oldname, ∗insname, ∗newname;

PARAMETERS

       oldname             Name of the segment in the instance

       insname             Name of the instance in the which the segment is to be searched for

       newname             Name to be given to the segment in the current figure

DESCRIPTION

       COPY_UP_SEG  adds  a segment in the current layout cell.  All the segment's attributes are
       copied from the first found segment called oldname  in  the  instance  insname.   The  new
       segment  is  given  the  name  newname.  The  main purpose of this function is to rename a
       segment, so it can be used later, when extracting a layout.

ERRORS

       "GENLIB_COPY_UP_SEG impossible : missing GENLIB_DEF_PHFIG"
              No figure has been yet specified by a call to DEF_PHFIG. So it  isn't  possible  to
              place a segment inside it.  you must call DEF_PHFIG before any other layout action.
       "illegal getphins : instance insname does not exist"
              The instance called insname does not currently belong to the figure.
       "GENLIB_COPY_UP_SEG impossible : segment segname does not exist"
              The segment segname does not exist in the model of the instance insname.

EXAMPLE

       #include <genlib.h>
       main()
       {
            /∗ Create a figure to work on  ∗/
            GENLIB_DEF_PHFIG("cell");
            GENLIB_PLACE("z2l_y", "r1", NOSYM, 23L, 54L);
            /∗ Put a segment ∗/
            GENLIB_COPY_UP_SEG("mux0_s", "r1", "out_s");
            /∗ Save that on disk ∗/
            GENLIB_SAVE_PHFIG();
       }
