    is there a skill code to check .dra or .brd for missing info? Reply

     

    Is there an existing skill code that can check a .dra or .brd for missing info in a symbol or all symbols? For example if its missing max height property or missing a dfa_bound_top shape or any other element that you want checked.

    If there is no existing skill code or way to do this in allegro who wants to try and have a go at it?

     Thank you - Gino

    Hi

    I'm not aware of such a program, but if you use the batch processing method that I've described in the thread below then you can write a skill program that checks for the info you're looking for http://www.cadence.com/community/forums/T/22844.aspx

    pseudo skill code could be something like

    open report file, write dra name to report 

    get all shapes

    check if one of them is dfa_bound_top, if not write message to report

    check if place_bound_top has height property, if not write message to report

    close report

     

    Another approach could be to create a skill program that runs through all symbols that can be seen from the psm path and do the same as outlined above.

     

    Best regards

    Ole

    Best regards Ole
