Tech Tip: Viewing The Combined Help for IES-XL

Comments(0)Filed under: Functional Verification, Enterprise Manager, Specman, IES-XL, tech tips, help

IES-XL is comprised of IUS, Incisive Verification Kits with Methodology, Specman, and Enterprise Manager in Desktop Mode.

One of very common query from Incisive Simulator users is the need to view the help of all the IES-XL components together, in a same help browser. The good news is that it is very simple to achieve !!! So, I thought of sharing it here.

Viewing the combined help for IES-XL product: As long as your IES-XL installation is a standard one (meaning that the IES-XL components are installed in the standard hierarchy), you can view the Help for all these components together in one Help browser by starting the Help with the following command:

%cdnshelp Specman-install-path/doc/ieslib.lbr

You can use a relative or absolute path. The full path for the ieslib.lbr file is:

% cdnshelp IES-XL-installdir/SPMN82/doc/ieslib.lbr

(If your IES-XL hierarchy is non-standard, you can edit the ieslib.lbr file to correct the paths in it.)

The combined Help lets you view, navigate between, and search across all of the help for all of IES-XL in one browser.HELP.JPG Simple!!
