Magic VLSI Layout Tool Version 7.3 *


Load an alternate layer colormap.
load [techStyle displayStyle monitorType]


load [techStyle displayStyle monitorType]

where techStyle is declared by the technology (normally "mos"), displayStyle is determined by the display visual (normally "7bit", "24bit", or "OpenGL"), and monitorType is normally "std".


The load command loads an alternative colormap file that can be used to change the colors used by magic for drawing layout.

By default, without arguments, the filename searched for varies according to the display visual type, but is normally

mos.24bit.std.cmap for 24- and 32-bit visuals, mos.7bit.std.cmap for 8-bit visuals, and mos.OpenGL.std.cmap for OpenGL visuals.
The current directory is searched first for local files overriding the system colormap defaults, followed by a search of the sys path as declared by the path command.

Implementation Notes:

load is implemented as a built-in color window command in magic. It can only be invoked from a window created with the specialopen color command.
