I am writing a program which involves displaying the heirarchical tree of all the instances and nets in a Cadence cell, exactly like it appears in the side of the cellview in Cadence. To do this I am writing a .restore file to the command line which should select all objects in the cellview. My problem is that I don't want my program to open Cadence, but can't find a way to select all the objects in a cellview without having the view window open and using the function geSelectAll().
Is this possible to do?
All help is much appreciated
