  • What is the syntax for creating pins withing SKILL

    I tried accessing the documentation, but it seems to be unavailable at my university this year. I was just wondering what the syntax for creating a pin is. I think it is dbCreatePin( ) but i don't know the parameters. Also is there a way to specify what material/metal the pin is created on?
