The cdsinfo.tag identifies the library directory itself as a library - the file should and must only be present at the library level, not at any level below it. (Strictly, the file is not actually required, since the cds.lib really identifies where the libraries are to the DFII system!)Originally posted in cdnusers.org by email@example.com
I don't know svn, but I presume the file in the .svn folder is the vault for the main cdsinfo.tag, or some other form of metadata managed by svn.
The rules of the Cadence 5X Library structure are, basically:
- Any object in a library with no "." in the name is assumed to be a folder and assumed to be a cell of the library.
- Any object in a library with a "." in the name is assumed to be a file.
This can, of course, cause some issues if you are not careful!
The other thing the cdsinfo.tag file contains is a line that tells the system which DM system is managing that library. For example, for a library managed by the DesignSync system, the file would contain:
But this is only of use if your DM system fully supports the GDM system.
