  • hiSaveAsViewFile() trouble in Virtuoso v6

    I have a script (http://www.cadence.com/Community/forums/p/24288/1317148.aspx#1317148) that will save the design tree file to a shell to run a shell script on, working in Virtuoso v5, but is breaking in Virtuoso v6 on the command hiSaveAsViewFile. The Save File As form looks quite different in v6, but...

  • Viewing a shell ascii file and creating a shell path

    I am using the view() function to open an ascii file from the shell, but it opens the file in the form/window in Virtuoso looking at the tail end of the file. EG if the ascii file is larger than the viewing window, the contents scroll down to the end of the file. Is there a way to use view() to open...

  • Function that returns a string value for the current cell view

    Is there a function similar to geGetEditCellView() that will return the string value of the current cell view, as opposed to its database ID number? For example, I have a layout view open called "MyLayout". If I use dbFullPath(), it will give me the full path to "...MyLibrary/MyLayout...

  • Skill Code to modify pin names

    I've written a skill code that is supposed to change one of the pin names of a given cell from an old value to a new one in the schematic and symbol views. It works well on the surface but gives a warning that I have to fix: the pin name gets changed as wanted in both views but there's a warning...

  • Re: Slotted Metal paths - updated form for v5.1.41

    Thanks D, I think I corrected the source of the compare problem, and I am using the abs() function for the comparison. The script seems to be working well, though I would like to hear if anyone that finds this useful also finds a bug. Surely that will never happen. : ) I have kept most of Lawrence's...

  • Re: Slotted Metal paths - updated form for v5.1.41

    Does anyone know how to compare a float value to zero? I have completed an updated slotted metal form script with user-defined values for slot dimensions but am having some trouble testing path widths to be on grid because a test to see of they are on grid randomly fails a float test comparison to zero...

  • Re: How to Update a custom Menu using a Menu item without deUnRegMenuTriggers()

    Hello, I am using the folowing code to use a menu item to update the menu contents and functions but it is not working properly. Using the Update item, I see all the right messages in the CIW, stating that functions have been redefined, but the functions do not really update (operate according to updated...

  • Can we fill a rodCreatePath with rectangles?

    Hi, There is an option to fill a rectangle with many small rectangles using subRectArray or rodfillbBoxwithRects. But is there a way to fill a path, created using rodCreatePath, with rectangles? I am writing a pcell code and need to fill a path with contacts. Thanks in advance.

  • Re: Slotted Metal paths

    Hi Lawrence, thanks for your reply and thank you for the script. I agree about the age of the code. I was hoping there might have been some update to it based on its age and the ubiquitousness of the application. I would like to enhance the form input to accept user defined bus widths without limitation...

  • Slotted Metal paths

    Does anyone know of an updated version of the CCSslotMetal.il script for slotted metal paths? This code is very old and has little flexibility for things like defining the size of the slots, width of the path, etc.
