Mconvert and Unmconvert
The script mconvert converts cif produced by wol into cif that magic can read
using the "cif read" command in magic. Given a file wolfile.cif,
Changes the file wolfile.cif so that the layer names are appropriate for magic.
Note that this is destructive! Another script, unmconvert, converts the
transformed file back into a form that wol can read; i.e.
Results in a file wolfile.cif that wol will read correctly. To real wol cif
into magic (typically for DRC'ing), for a file wolfile.cif that has been
treated with mconvert, do the following:
:cif istyle lambda=1.0(oldnwell)
:cif read wolfile
-- This assumes lambda=1.0 in the original wolfile.cif
-- Many spurious errors will be found, if each individual cell in wolfile.cif
is not design-rule correct, even if the composition of all cells are in
fact correct. To avoid this, flatten the cif file in wol first, using the
FLATTEN menu in the XTRACT menu of the composition buffer.
