GENLIB_PLACE_VIA_REF - put a via on top of a reference belonging to an instance in the current figure
void GENLIB_PLACE_VIA_REF(insname, refname, viatype)
char *insname, *refname;

insname Name of the instance in the which the reference is to be searched for
refname Name of the reference to be used as target point
viatype Type of via to be placed
PLACE_VIA_REF places a via of type viatype on top of the specified reference, refname, in the instance called insname. This function may
be used to generate many cells from a single one, in order to "program" decoders for example, or in conjuction with PLACE_SEG_REF(3) or
PLACE_CON_REF(3) to translate virtual connectors into fixed ones.
The viatype argument may take the following legal values:
CONT_POLY links POLY and ALU1
CONT_DIF_N links NDIF and ALU1
CONT_DIF_P links PDIF and ALU1
CONT_BODY_N links NTIE and ALU1
CONT_BODY_P links PTIE and ALU1
CONT_VIA links ALU1 and ALU2
CONT_VIA2 links ALU2 and ALU3
"GENLIB_PLACE_VIA_REF impossible : missing GENLIB_DEF_PHFIG"
No figure has been yet specified by a call to DEF_PHFIG. So it isn't possible to place a reference inside it. you must call
DEF_PHFIG before any other layout action.
"illegal getphins : instance insname does not exist"
The instance called insname does not currently belong to the figure.
"illegal getphref : references called refname does not exist"
No reference called refname exists in the model of the instance insname.
