    Extract clines and vias from a board file Reply

    Hello All,

    I am trying to extract the via and cline information for specific symbols on a board with SKILL. The problem I am seeing is that the parent of the traces keeps coming back as a branch rather then a symbol. What is the best way to identify the vias and traces that are part of a specific symbol

    Regards

    Peter Hughes

    Hello phughes,

     Try using axlDBGetConnect, it can give you list of elements connected to the given dbid.. then after getting the connected elements.

    You can now filter vias and clines from it..

    The cline dbid will have a symbol dbid assigned to the attribute 'symbolEtch if a cline is part of a symbol. If you have a cline dbid called "cline" then

         cline->symbolEtch

    is what you want to check.
