Magic VLSI Layout Tool Version 7.3 *


Open a GUI layout window and all of its associated frames.


Menu option File->New window implements the command openwrapper in the GUI layout window.


openwrapper [cellname] frame_name]]

where frame_name is the Tk path name of the top-level layout GUI window frame. By default, this name is .layout1, .layout2, etc., for successive layout windows. cellname is the name of a cell to be loaded into the window. Options behave the same was as they do for the non-GUI openwindow command.


The openwrapper command creates a new layout window in the Tcl version of magic. It is only applicable when magic is invoked with the GUI wrapper, using magic -w, and supercedes the built-in command openwindow.

Implementation Notes:

openwrapper is implemented as a Tcl procedure in the GUI wrapper script.
