I'm working on old process which using still IC5141. Trying to lefout a very simple layout (just with shape and pin only), but encountered error as below. I'm having difficulty in troubleshooting.
May need some advice for those whom encountered the same issue to point me the problematic part.
Version: "@(#)$CDS: layoutPlus.exe version 5.1.0 02/02/2009 09:56 (cicln04) $"
Thanks a lot.

I managed to generated the LEF file of a simple design. What i do is to added prRules section into the techfile. Yeah!
But, the output lef is has only technology information. All design related info such as MACRO, SITE is missing from the left file. Do i need to add any property like prCellType and prCellClass into my layout view in order to get it work? I tried it but failed also.
You advice is value for me. Thanks
