NAME

       GENLIB_FLATTEN_ALL_PHINS - flatten all instances in the current layout figure

SYNOPSYS

       #include <genlib.h>
       void GENLIB_FLATTEN_ALL_PHINS(concat, catal)
       char concat, catal;

PARAMETER

       concat              Indicate  whether  or  not  to  concatenate instance name to instance'
                           objects name

       catal               Indicate whether or not to look in the catalog file before  flattening
                           a cell

DESCRIPTION

       FLATTEN_ALL_PHINS  inserts  the contents of all the instances of the current figure in the
       current figure.  All these instances are  destroyed  during  the  process,  and  therefore
       cannot be refered to later in the layout description.
       The concat parameter may take two values:

       YES    to concatenate object name with instance names.

       NO     to copy object names.

       In  most  case, the concat value must be YES, in order to warranty the unicity of names in
       the figure.  It may otherwise fail, because the function would try to add in  the  current
       figure some object with an already existing name.
       The catal parameter may also take two values:

       YES    to  check  the  catalog  file  to see if the model of an instance is in it.  If the
              model belong to the catalog, then it is not flattened.

       NO     in this case, no checks are done, and every instance is flattened.

EXAMPLE

       #include <genlib.h>
       main()
       {
            /∗ Create a figure to work on  ∗/
            GENLIB_DEF_PHFIG("mycell");
            .
            .
            .
            /∗ Place an instance ∗/
            PHINS("model","instance", "sig1", "sig2", EOL);
            /∗ flatten all figure instance ∗/
            GENLIB_FLATTEN_ALL_PHINS(YES, YES);
            /∗ Save all that on disk ∗/
            GENLIB_SAVE_PHFIG();
       }
