NAME

       GENLIB_DEF_PHFIG - open a layout model as current figure

SYNOPSYS

       #include <genlib.h>
       void GENLIB_DEF_PHFIG(cellname)
       char ∗cellname;

PARAMETERS

       cellname            Name  of  the cell which all futher calls to genlib physical functions
                           will work on

DESCRIPTION

       DEF_PHFIG defines the current physical working figure by it's name, the cellname argument.
       It  can be use anywhere in the genlib program, but must appear at least once at the top of
       it, since it also initalize the user's preferences through environment variables.
       If the figure called cellname doesn't exists in memory, it  is  created.   If  it  already
       exists  in memory, it makes it the current working figure.  DEF_PHFIG doesn't look on disk
       for the figure cellname, so be careful not to overwrite  an  existing  file  while  saving
       later on.

EXAMPLE

       #include <genlib.h>
       main()
       {
            /∗ Create a figure to work on  ∗/
            GENLIB_DEF_PHFIG("mycell");
            /∗ Place an instance ∗/
            GENLIB_PLACE("mymodel","firstinstance", NOSYM,0L,0L);
            /∗ Save all that on disk ∗/
            GENLIB_SAVE_PHFIG();
       }
