NAME

       addphcon - create a physical connector

SYNOPSYS

       #include "mph.h"
       phcon_list ∗addphcon(ptfig, orient, conname, x, y, layer, width)
       phfig_list ∗ptfig;
       char orient;
       char ∗conname;
       long x, y;
       char layer;
       long width;

PARAMETERS

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

       orient              Face of the connector

       conname             Name of the connector

       x, y                Absolute connector coordinates

       layer               Connector symbolic layer

       width               Connector symbolic width

DESCRIPTION

       addphcon  creates  a  new  connector  called conname and adds it to the list of connectors
       pointed to by ptfig->PHCON. The new connector is added in front of the list,  and  becomes
       itself the list head.
       The  parameters  conname,  orient,  x,  y, layer, width fill respectivly the NAME, ORIENT,
       XCON, YCON, LAYER, WIDTH fields of the phcon structure.  See phcon(3) for details.
       The INDEX field is computed by the addphcon function in order to warranty index unicity. A
       topological  sort is performed, checking x, then y, then the layer. So for a given figure,
       each connector will have a constant INDEX.
       The x, y coordinates must be placed inside the butment box of the figure.
       The width is a layer extension that takes place in parallel to the connector face.
       For a list of valid orient and layers, see locon(3).

RETURN VALUE

       addphcon returns a pointer to the newly created connector.

ERRORS

       "∗∗∗ mbk error ∗∗∗ illegal addphcon unknow layer layer in conname"
              The layer parameter is out of range, and does not represent a legal symbolic layer.
              See locon(3) for a complete list of layers.
       "∗∗∗ mbk error ∗∗∗ illegal addphcon connector conname not in abutment box"
              The  connector coordinates are not included in the rectangle of the figure abutment
              box. This means that the abutment box field of the phfig must be filled  befor  any
              call to addphcon.
       "∗∗∗ mbk error ∗∗∗ illegal addphcon orientation is orient in conname"
              The  orient  parameter  is  not  in  the  set of legal values. See locon(3) for the
              complete list of orientations.

EXAMPLE

       #include "mph.h"
       phcon_list ∗du_con(ptfig, ptcon) /∗ duplicate connector ∗/
       phfig_list ∗ptfig;
       phcon_list ∗ptcon;
       {
          /∗ the index depends from what's in ptfig->PHCON, not from me ∗/
          return addphcon(ptfig, ptcon->ORIENT, ptcon->NAME,
                          ptcon->XCON, ptcon->YCON,
                          ptcon->LAYER, ptcon->WIDTH);
       }
