Running a spectre simulation from adexl I am getting this error:
Error found by spectre during circuit read-in. ERROR (SFE-874): "input.scs" 3633: Unexpected operator ">". Expected end of file or end of line.
The interesting part of scs netlist is listed below. Please note that the \ escape was applied to the netlist but not to the output signals. I don't know why.
I tried the \ escape on the "Outputs Setup" pane but then I could not check the save box. Thus, I assume I cannot enter the signals with the \ escape in the outputs setup pane. How can I getaround that problem?

Which subversion of virtuoso are you using? (Help->About in the CIW will tell you this, or typing getVersion(t) in the CIW)
In addition, what do you get if you type:

In reply to Andrew Beckett:
I have ICADV12.1-64b.500.6
envGetVal("asimenv" "mappingMode") -> "nmp"
In reply to sram8t:
Got further with the problem:
the output signal was missing the preceeding / on the "Outputs Setup" pane.
With the signal name changed to /Icore/RWL_B0_WN<0> the simulation ran to completion.
The input.scs file now has it in the save statement as Icore.RWL_B0_WN\<0\>
But now, when double clicking on the output I get this message:
ERROR (WIA-1006): Unable to plot expression <VT("/Icore/RWL_B0_WN<0>" .....
*Warning* Wave1 is not a waveform object that can be displayed and will be DELETED automatically. name: "/Icore/RWL_B0_WN<0>"
