Magic VLSI Layout Tool Version 8.2 *

dump


Copy contents of the indicated cell into the current edit cell.

Usage:

dump cell [child child_refpoint] [parent parent_refpoint]

where cell is the name of the cell whose contents are to be copied, and optional child_refpoint and parent_refpoint are coordinate pairs of x y values, or keywords ll, lr, ul, or ur. The syntax and use of the reference points is the same as for the getcell command.

Summary:

The dump command copies contents of the indicated cell cell into the current edit cell. Without arguments, the contents are placed such that the lower left coordinate of cell is at the cursor box lower left corner. With the child argument, the indicated coordinate position child_refpoint is used instead of the lower-left corner. With the parent argument, the indicated coordinate position parent_refpoint is used instead of the lower-left corner of the cursor box.

Implementation Notes:

dump is implemented as a built-in command in magic.
