MS98-MEASURE : FLAG

MS98-MEASURE is a flag or parameter.
Determines the measure which is used on components.
If 0, count the components blocked and then weight heavily against
the situation described by MS98-VALID-PAIR.
If 1, the standard measure using the # of components blocked and touched
If 2, as for 1 but also take account of the number of dups
If 3, just count the number of components blocked
If 4, as for 2 but also count the no of matings for the smallest
component touched
If 5, multiply the no of matings for the smallest touched by the
number of subs.
If 6, use the ratio of blocked to touched components and the ratio
of the number of blocked components to the number of connections.
If 7, prefer matings where positive leaves are mated to negative leaves
and vice versa.
If 8, use the ratio of blocked to touched components.
If 9, favour large components satisfying max-mates 1.
If 10, do as for 9 and then weight heavily against
the situation described by MS98-VALID-PAIR.
If 11, do as for 6 and then weight heavily against
the situation described by MS98-VALID-PAIR.
If 12, do as for 8 and then weight heavily against
the situation described by MS98-VALID-PAIR.
If 13, weight in favour of components with max-mates 1 and then
weight heavily against the situation described by MS98-VALID-PAIR.
If 14, do as for 7 and then weight heavily against
the situation described by MS98-VALID-PAIR.
If 15, take the average of 11 and 14.
MS98-MEASURE takes values of type INTEGER+.
It belongs to subjects MS98-1 .
Its default value is 0
Its current value is 0.
