It is best to insert your entries in the front by:   set scriptpath = <your stuff> $scriptpath The env file attempts to read a site specific env file ...

  • Re: how to work around limits in axlDBGetExtents
     I would call GetExtents for each element and see what it rejects (returns nil) The skill code: for(i 1 1000 printf("i=%d\n" i)) has no trouble echoing 1000 lines to the Skill window

    Look into if the list contains an  unsupported dbids. GetExtents only supports segements, clines, lines, rect, filled rect, figure, text, shape, voids, pins, vias and symbol instances. If you have dbids like nets, symbol defs, or groups it will fail.

  • Re: Making a Form with a Scrollbar?
    Like eDave suggests use a STRFILLIN  with the multiline option. The following form file snippet will create a 16 width by 10 high control with a vertical scrollbar that will support up to 1024 characters. Using the FSIZE parameter is what allows a taller control. If you do not wish to let the user edit the string mark the control as read-only ...

  • Re: Problem with scripts that require file browsers
    Normally these are logfiles created during the import/export operation. Except for Cadence import logic which creates a netrev.lst, the files have a .log extension.
