I have a script (http://www.cadence.com/Community/forums/p/24288/1317148.aspx#1317148) that will save the design tree file to a shell to run a shell script on, working in Virtuoso v5, but is breaking in Virtuoso v6 on the command hiSaveAsViewFile.
The Save File As form looks quite different in v6, but I cannot figure out Cadence's documentation to search for (anything..) something like this.
In v5 I use:
hiSaveAsViewfile->file->value-> = Newfilename
However, in v6, I get the error message " eval: unbound variable - hiSaveAsViewfile".
Since testing with print statements is able to show me that the variable Newfilename is properly defined, and the command hiSaveAsViewfile() works in v6, I can only guess that the form itself is different in v6, and the format hiSaveAsViewfile->file->value is not the same.
2 Questions -
1. how can I test for the version of Virtuoso as an environment variable so I can handle this save function accordingly?
2. what is the v6 format for hiSaveAsViewfile->file->value??
many thanks in advance!
Hello Derek, or others who may see this thread,
I am running the script below to operate on the Design Tree saved out to the shell as an ascii file, but the hiSaveAsViewFile() cmd does not overwrite an existing file.
Is there a way to force hiSaveAsViewFile() to overwrite an existing file?
If not, I can always do it with a shell script, but using SKILL would be simpler.
Any help with this would be much appreciated!!!
