Hello cadence community,
I've have a question - is there any way (via SKILL commands) to clean the history (and even better - clear the cache and oher CIW inner memory cells as if you would start from scratch) in the main CIW window?
Now, explaining what I mean by the word "cleaning" and why I need it.
This operation is required when I'm doing huge calculations (say 2000 iterations of any type of analysis) via OCEAN scripts. The problem is simple - the script does calculations on say 2/3 of all required and then CIW vanishes without leaving any messages in the terminal. From my experience I can tell that the script does about 1500 or so iterations and then CIW vanishes.
I'm very picky on what I save (aka save 'selected) and every iteration overwrites the results folder therefore work folder being overfilled by netlists and results is not the solution to this. This is also not a script problem because the script runs perfectly and finishes as intended when less iteration counts are set.
I assume that some sort of a inner buffer is overfilled, but don't have a clue whether that's the case. For example Matlab has "clear" and "clear all" commands to clean the buffer. Tried to search for something of that sort in the design framework II SKILL document, but found nothing. Did a quick search on this in other SKILL documents in the cdnchelp folder but to no avail.
I'm using Virtuoso 126.96.36.1990.6.150 (don't think that mattters, but still). Didn't try running the script on IC6.15.
