NAME
addphcon - create a physical connector

ORIGIN
This  software  belongs	to  the  ALLIANCE CAD SYSTEM developed by the ASIM team at LIP6 laboratory of Universite Pierre et Marie CURIE, in
Paris, France.

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 struc-
ture.  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 */
ptcon->XCON, ptcon->YCON,
ptcon->LAYER, ptcon->WIDTH);
}
