The return value is a string, where the first three characters are the previous values of ptr_mode, area_mode, and sel_mode as integers, not ASCII characters.
The string argument consists of a sequence of characters whose presence indicates that the corresponding object type is selectable. These are:
c cell instances b boxes p polygons w wires l labels
Other characters are ignored. If the string is null, empty, or contains none of the listed characters, all objects are enabled, as if the string ``cbpwl'' was entered.
This function always returns 1.
Select(-INFINITY, -INFINITY, INFINITY, INFINITY, "c")will select all subcells.
For more complex selections based on object types, etc., the TextCmd function can be used to call the !select command.
