NAME

       addphfig - create a new physical cell model

SYNOPSYS

       #include "mph.h"
       phfig_list ∗addphfig(figname)
       char ∗figname;

PARAMETER

       figname             Name of the figure to be created

DESCRIPTION

       addphfig  creates a new figure called figname and adds it to the list of figure in memory.
       The new figure is added in front of the list, and becomes itself the list head.  No  check
       is  performed  to  see if a figure with the figname exists on disk. If it is the case, the
       preexisting file will be erased while saving.
       The fields PHCON, PHINS, PHSEG, PHVIA, PHREF and USER are set to NULL.
       The fields XAB1,  YAB1,  XAB2,  XAB2 are set to 0L.
       The field MODE is set to 'A'.
       The field NEXT points to the previous head of list.

RETURN VALUE

       addphfig returns a pointer to the newly created figure.

ERRORS

       "∗∗∗ mbk error ∗∗∗ illegal addphfig figure figname already exists"
              There is already a figure called figname in memory, so it's impossible to give this
              name to a cell to be created.

EXAMPLE

       #include "mph.h"
       phfig_list ∗get_the_fig(name)
       char ∗name;
       {
       phfig_list ∗pt, ∗fill_fig(/∗ phfig_list  ∗/);
          /∗ scan figure list ∗/
          for (pt = HEAD_PHFIG; pt; pt = pt->NEXT)
             if (!strcmp(pt->NAME, figname))
                break;
          return pt ? pt : fill_fig(addphfig(figname));
       }
