flatenphfig(3) flatten a instance in a figure


#include "mph.h"
void flatenphfig(ptfig, insname, concat)
phfig_list *ptfig;
char *insname;
char concat;


Pointer to a physical figure
Name of the instance to be flattened
Name generation mode


flatenphfig 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 object 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.


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


#include "mph.h"
void flatten_na2_y_s(ptfig)
phfig_list *ptfig;
phins_list *pt;
   for (pt = ptfig->PHINS; pt; pt = pt->NEXT) /* scan instance list */
      if (!strcmp(pt->FIGNAME, "na2_y"))
         flatenphfig(ptfig, pt->INSNAME, NO);
