  • Move figures to new layer in AXL skill

    In Allegro PCB editor, I want to be able to move all the currently selected clines to a different layer, like you can do in the GUI by right clicking and selecting Change to Layer. Here's what I've got so far, items = axlGetSelSet() ( foreach item items layername = axlGetParam(item->layer...

  • Re: Bindkeys

    Hi KewlCat, The difference in the encoding is "<Key>g" versus "Shift<Key>g" in the syntax within the call to hiSetBindKey() or hiSetBindKeys() , for encoding "g" and "G" respectively. I hope that this answers your question. Regards, Lawrence.

  • Re: $ sign doesn't work with ipcBeginProcess

    Hi Yaosan, Have you tried escaping the "$" by preceding it with a backslash (or perhaps two backslashes - I have not checked in this case), e.g. cmd = "perl -e '\$i=1; print \$i;'" ;; may need this instead, uncomment if the above does not work ; cmd = "perl -e '\...

  • SKILL mechanism to determine if CDBA or OA

    I would like to branch my pcell code based on whether the code is running inside IC6 (OA) or IC51 (CDBA). What is the preferred, or recommended way of doing this. I have thought of a few ways, but I want to use something, which will be supported for the lifetime of both platforms. ... Thanks!

  • dbCreateVia() questions: justification and other examples

    I am migrating my pcells to IC6, and I am wrestling with the new via model. Our PDK uses "standard vias", so I understand that I need to use the dbCreateVia function. Apparently, I can override paramaters, even for standard vias, so I can use the following syntax: dbCreateVia(cvId viaId list...

  • Re: methods for variable integer to string conversion

    Thanks Andrew for your suggestions. I like the array idea too. However, it would be nice to be able to use a wild card so that I don't have to declare all the variables in the array. e.g. I thought declare(pp**_[10]) would let me declare the array just once for something like: pp1x_[m], pp1y_[m]...

  • Re: methods for variable integer to string conversion

    Hi Lawrence, I shall appreciate if you could help me achieve the opposite, i.e. converting string to a variable. I want the vertices of a polygon to be variables with an index (say 'm') included in its name which gets updated in a 'for' loop. I'm unable to assign an integer value...
