Magic VLSI Layout Tool Version 8.2 *


Set the cursor box to the location of the indicated label


findlabel [-glob] label [occur]

where label is the name of an existing label in magic, and optional argument occur is an integer.


The findlabel command can be used to center the cursor box on a specific named label in the layout.

The -glob option causes findlabel to find all labels containing the text pattern of label. This is the way the findlabel command worked in versions of magic prior to 7.2.

The optional argument occur will center the cursor box on the Nth instance of the label, where N=occur (option introduced in version 8.3.86). If occur is greater than the number of labels in the edit cell, then the result is the same as for a label that is not found.

Implementation Notes:

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