figname Name of the layout figure to be instanciated
ins1 Name to be given to the instance in the model
con1 Name of the connector of the instance to be used for placement
index1 Index of the connector, or reference, con1 of the model to be used for placement
symetry Geometrical operation to be performed on the instance before beeing placed
ins2 Name of the instance to be used for relative placement
con2 Name of the connector of the instance ins2 on which the placement will take place
index2 Index of the connector con2 of the instance to be used for relative placement
PLACE_ON add an instance in the current layout cell. The bottom left corner of the instance of the model modelname is placed, after beeing
symetrized and/or rotated, at (x, y) coordinates. The placed instance becomes the new "reference instance", used in the relative placement
The insname is the name given to the instance and must be unique at a given hierarchy level.
The symetry argument can take eight legal values :
NOSYM no geometrical operation is performed
SYM_Y Y becomes -Y, that means toward X axe symetry
SYM_X X becomes -X, that means toward Y axe symetry
SYMXY X becomes -X, Y becomes -Y
ROT_P a positive 90 degrees rotation take place
ROT_M a negative 90 degrees rotation take place
SY_RP Y becomes -Y, and then a positive 90 degrees rotation take place
SY_RM Y becomes -Y, and then a negative 90 degrees rotation take place
The model of the figure to be placed must be available, on disk or in memory. The path to the library is specified in the MBK_CATA_LIB (1)
and MBK_WORK_LIB (1) environment variables, and its format is given by the MBK_IN_PH (1) environment variable.
"GENLIB_PLACE_ON impossible : missing GENLIB_DEF_PHFIG"
No figure has been yet specified by a call to DEF_PHFIG. So it isn't possible to place an instance inside it. you must call
DEF_PHFIG before any other layout action.
"illegal addphins : transformation is x in insname"
The symetry parameter is not one of the define given, but has the integer value x.
