I am trying to write a SKILL code to Zoom to an selected co-ordinate.
Problem: When we run DRC/LVS a log file with error co-ordinates is generated. Its very difficult to find the co-ordinates manually on the layout.
Effort: I copied the error co-ordinates onto to a file, read each line of the file and zoom to a particular co-ordinate using SKILL routines.
Requirment: IS there a way that i open the log file, select the co-ordinates using mouse and click a key ( already key bound to a procedure) to zoom to the particular co-ordinates.
I am not able to find out how to capture the selected co-ordinates or text and use it in the SKILL procedure.
I tried to find out where the selected text is stored in the system. I found that its stored in a system's "selection buffer" (Selection.c). Is there a way to access this location.
AM i going in the right direction or does the SKILL has any procedure to capture this?
