NAME

       flattenlofig - flatten a instance in a logical figure

SYNOPSYS

       #include "mlo.h"
       void flattenlofig(ptfig, insname, concat)
       lofig_list ∗ptfig;
       char ∗insname;
       char concat;

PARAMETERS

       ptfig               Pointer to a logical figure

       insname             Name of the instance to be flattened

       concat              Name generation mode

DESCRIPTION

       flattenlofig  flattens  the  instance  called  insname  in the figure pointed to by ptfig.
       Flattening means incorporating the contents of the instance in the figure and removing  it
       from its instance list.
       the  concat  argument  can take either the value YES in which case the name of the objects
       comming from the instance are named insname'X'objectname, where 'X' is  the  caracter  set
       int  the  MBK_SEPAR(1)  environment  variable,  or  the value NO, and then the object name
       remains inchanged. This is quite dangerous since name unicity is no more  warrantied,  and
       may cause the flatten to fail. See MBK_SEPAR(1), mbkenv(3) and concatname(3) for details.

ERRORS

       No  errors  can  directly result from a call to flattenlofig, but since it uses many other
       mbk functions, it may be an error starting point.

EXAMPLE

       #include "mlo.h"
       void flatten_na2_y_s(ptfig)
       lofig_list ∗ptfig;
       {
       loins_list ∗pt;
          for (pt = ptfig->LOINS; pt; pt = pt->NEXT) /∗ scan instance list ∗/
             if (!strcmp(pt->FIGNAME, "na2_y"))
                flattenlofig(ptfig, pt->INSNAME, NO);
       }
