I might have a similar need than Ram. I want to run simulations totally in batch as there is the need to run many designs in batch in parallel, so I want to start the netlisting and simulations for various designs in batch w/o bringing up the GUI.
I can netlist but I don't get the Design Variables set. In ADE-XL I see "Global Variables" and "Parameters" but no "Design Variables".
At the end of netlisting I get this message:
Simulation design variables differ from those on the cellView,
they have been saved in the file "/tmp/saved-design-variables".
To save future changes, copy variables to cellView before exiting.
That file contains empty strings for each variable.
I can also list the parameters (?) with this command: asiGetDesignVarList( sessionId ) and they have the correct values.
I'm not sure about the differences between "Global Variiables", "Design Variables", and "Parameters"
Can you point to the SR mentioned?
