NAME

       sortlosig - sort the logical signals of a figure by name

SYNOPSYS

       #include "mlo.h"
       void sortlosig(signals)
       losig_list ∗∗signals;

PARAMETERS

       ∗∗signals           Pointer to the head of the list of signals that is to be sorted

DESCRIPTION

       sortlosig  sorts  the  list  of  signals pointed to by signals.  The signals are sorted by
       names, but since names are not the signals identifier, the getsigname(3) routine is called
       to retrieve a signal name.
       The  standart  qsort(3)  function  library  is called for sorting.  Therefore, a table the
       number of signal wide is created, requiring a lot of memory with big circuits.  Also, even
       if  qsort(3)  runs  in  n  log  n  time,  getsigname(3)  is  called twice, and the natural
       comparison function once, and this is quite time  consuming  with  big  circuits.   It  is
       recommended to use this function only if needed.

EXAMPLE

       #include "mlo.h"
       void savesorted(figname)
       char ∗figname;
       {
       lofig_list ∗figure = getlosig(figname, 'A');
         sortlocon(&figure->LOCON);
         sortlosig(&figure->LOSIG);
         savelofig(figure);
       }
