NAME

       GENLIB_SC_PLACE - place an instance in the current figure at absolute coordinates

SYNOPSYS

       #include <genlib.h>
       void GENLIB_SC_PLACE(insname, symetry, x, y)
       char ∗insname;
       char symetry;
       long x,y;

PARAMETERS

       insname             Name to be given to the instance on the model

       symetry             Geometrical  operation  to  be performed on the instance before beeing
                           placed

       x, y                Coordinates of the lower left corner of the abutment box of the  model
                           in the current figure

DESCRIPTION

       SC_PLACE  add  an  instance in the current cell. The bottom left corner of the instance is
       placed, after beeing symetrized and/or rotated, at (x, y) coordinates. The placement takes
       place only if the netlist is up to day, because the model of the instance is seeked there,
       in order to ensure consistency.  The placed instance becomes the new "reference instance",
       used in the relative placement functions.
       The symetry argument can take eight legal values :

       NOSYM               no geometrical operation is performed

       SYM_Y               Y becomes -Y, that means toward X axe symetry

       SYM_X               X becomes -X, that means toward Y axe symetry

       SYMXY               X becomes -X, Y becomes -Y

       ROT_P               a positive 90 degrees rotation take place

       ROT_M               a negative 90 degrees rotation take place

       SY_RP               Y becomes -Y, and then a positive 90 degrees rotation take place

       SY_RM               Y becomes -Y, and then a negative 90 degrees rotation take place

ERRORS

       "GENLIB_SC_PLACE impossible : missing GENLIB_DEF_PHFIG"
              No  figure  has  been yet specified by a call to DEF_PHFIG. So it isn't possible to
              place an instance inside it.  you must  call  DEF_PHFIG  before  any  other  layout
              action.
       "GENLIB_SC_PLACE impossible : missing GENLIB_DEF_LOFIG"
              The current netlist figure is not define, so SC_PLACE doesn't know where to pick up
              the model. A DEF_LOFIG or a DEF_PHSC is to be performed to avoid this error.
       "GENLIB_SC_PLACE impossible : no logical instance insname"
              The instance insname does not exist in the netlist representation of the  cell.  It
              may  lead  us  to  believe  that  there  is  a  consistency problem between the two
              representation of this cell.
       "illegal addphins : transformation is x in insname"
              The symetry parameter is not one of the define given, but has the integer value x.

EXAMPLE

       #include <genlib.h>
       main()
       {
            /∗ Create a figure to work on  ∗/
            GENLIB_DEF_PHSC("cell");
            /∗ Place two instances ∗/
            GENLIB_SC_PLACE("ins1", NOSYM, 0L, 0L);
            GENLIB_SC_PLACE("ins2", NOSYM, 80L, 100L);
            /∗ Save all that on disk ∗/
            GENLIB_SAVE_PHSC();
       }
