Magic VLSI Layout Tool Version 7.3 *


Netlist operations for use with the "netlist tool" in a layout window.


netlist option

wher option may be one of the following:
Print usage information
Select the network nearest the cursor
Join the current network and the network containing the terminal nearest the cursor.
Toggle the terminal nearest the cursor into or out of the current network.


The netlist command works with the "netlist tool" and is the interface between the layout window and the netlist window as generated by the "specialopen netlist" command. The command options, outlined above, allow interactive creation of netlists from a layout. Note that this is only interface code; most manipulation of the netlist is handled by the netlist window commands (see the section in the table of contents on the netlist window command set).

Implementation Notes:

netlist is implemented as a built-in command in magic. Prior to magic-7.3 revision 61, these functions were only available as built-in button callbacks. They have been changed to command-line commands with the switch to handling buttons like keys, with macro bindings.
