I'm looking to display a .txt file as output in ADE-XL. I'm running an Ocean script on each corner which creates a text file (noise summary) that I can print directly (eg. ipcBeginProcess(strcat("nedit " outFile "&"))).
Actually, I'd like these files to be linked as outputs in ADE-XL, not being displayed automatically (that is, I'd like to open only the text files corresponding to the worst corners - having 20 or 30 report text files opened at the same time is pretty cumbersome).
It'd be better to only have to click on an output field of a specific corner to have it displayed. When using the above expression as output ('outFile' is the path of the output file, defined as a string output with axlOutputResults()), I only get a waveform window with a dot at (0 0) displayed when clicking on the output field.
I've also tried adding another ADE-XL output to the script, but I got an MPS_ERROR with ipcUT (couldn't understand its meaning):
axlOutputResult(ipcBeginProcess(strcat("nedit " outFile " &")) "nsum.txt")
axlOutputResult(evalstring("ipcBeginProcess(strcat(\"nedit \" outFile \" &\"))") "nsum.txt")
By the way, when running the simulation without the script and reevaluating with the script afterwards, I get no error and clicking on an output field gives me back the waveform window (0,0) AND the text file... unfortunately, it's not very convenient to run the simulation and enable+reevaluate the script afterwards each time...
Thanks for your input,
