Hi everyone, and welcome to the first Five-Minute Tutorial! I have several things planned for this series. Today we're going to look at getting help on the command line in the Encounter Digital Implementation (EDI) system.Sometimes in the middle of an EDI session, you want to run a command but you can't remember the exact name, or the exact options. Sometimes you don't even know if a command exists to do what you want, but you'd like to find out if it does. Obviously, you can always look at the EDI System Text Command Reference. (And I recommend doing so to learn all about the various EDI commands. This is a manual that I use every single day!) But sometimes you just want a quick reference at your fingertips. This is available in the form of command-line help.Let's say you want to report the transition violations in your design. You know there's a command to do that, but you don't recall if it's report_tran_violation, reportTranViolation, or something else similar. At the EDI command prompt, you can type:
encounter 31> help report_t*Multiple commands found: report_timing report_timing_derate report_timing_formatencounter 32> help reportT*Multiple commands found: reportTimingDerate reportTimingLib reportTranViolation
encounter 33> help reportTranViolationUsage: reportTranViolation reportTranViolation [-all | -noGlobalNets] [-selNetFile <selNetFileName>] [-excNetFile <excNetFileName>] [-useDrcMargin] -outfile <fileName>
encounter 36> legalize <press the tab key>legalizeFPlan legalizePin
encounter 38> legalizeambiguous command name "legalize": legalizeFPlan legalizePin
Hi kari ,
Thank u very much . I will be following link .
A better place for your questions would be the Digital Implementation Forum. That's the place where Cadence tool users (and EDI in particular) post and answer questions relating to EDI, place and route, etc. The comments section for blogs should remain related to the blog. I'll look for your question over on the forum and answer there! Thanks so much for joining the community and reading our blogs. I hope you find the forum useful as well! Here's a direct link to get you started:
You can also search the forum to see if someone has already asked/answered a similar question.

Thank u :-)
Hi, There are no setPlaceMode options called -inPlaceOpt or -prePlaceOpt (at least in the 10.1 EDI version). I think you mean placeDesign -inPlaceOpt and -noPrePlaceOpt. PrePlaceOpt removes buffers from the design before placement. InPlaceOpt does an optimization concurrent with placement, so make sure you have the opt settings you would like using the setOptMode command. Hope that helps!
can u please let me know clear difference between setPlaceMode -inPlaceOpt and setPlaceMode -prePlaceOpt .
