where option may be one of the following:
- abort [string]
- Stop the getnode search when the node name string is encountered.
- alias [on|off]
- If on, reports all names found for the node. If off, only the canonical name is returned.
- globals [on|off]
- If on, any global node name (names ending with "!") will terminate the search, returning the global name. If off, global names are treated like local node names.
- Return the first name encountered, rather than finding the canonical node name.
The getnode command queries areas of selected paint for netlist node names. The converse of this command is goto.
getnode is implemented as a built-in command in magic. The node name search uses the same algorithm as the netlist connectivity selection function, and for very large networks, can be quite slow.
