NAME

       addlocon - create a logical connector

SYNOPSYS

       #include "mlo.h"
       locon_list ∗addlocon(ptfig, name, ptsig, dir)
       lofig_list ∗ptfig;
       char ∗name;
       losig_list ∗ptsig;
       char dir;

PARAMETERS

       ptfig               Pointer to the figure in which the connector should be added

       name                Name of the connector

       ptsig               Pointer on the signal linked to the connector

       dir                 Connector direction type

DESCRIPTION

       addlocon  creates a new figure connector called name and adds it to the list of connectors
       pointed to by ptfig->LOCON.  The new connector is added in front of the list, and  becomes
       itself the list head.
       The  parameters  name,  ptsig, dir, width fill respectivly the NAME, SIG and DIR fields of
       the locon structure. The name should be unique at a given hierarchical  level  since  it's
       the connector identifier.
       The  field  TYPE is set to EXTERNAL since a cell connector is beeing created. The instance
       connectors are builded up by the addloins(3) call. See addloins(3)  for  details.   For  a
       list of valid dir, see locon(3).

RETURN VALUE

       addlocon returns a pointer to the newly created connector.

ERRORS

       "∗∗∗  mbk  error  ∗∗∗  addlocon  impossible  :  connector  name  already  exists in figure
       ptfig->NAME"
              The name beeing the logical connector idenfier, two connectors  may  not  have  the
              same name in a given figure.
       "∗∗∗ mbk error ∗∗∗ addlocon impossible : bad direction dir in figure ptfig->NAME"
              The dir does not have a legal value. For the set of legal values, see locon(3).

EXAMPLE

       #include "mlo.h"
       locon_list ∗du_con(ptfig, ptcon) /∗ duplicate connector ∗/
       lofig_list ∗ptfig;
       locon_list ∗ptcon;
       {
          return addlocon(ptfig, ptcon->NAME, ptcon->SIG, ptcon->DIR);
       }
