I wonder why the setSGq and the getSGq functions are not described in the Language Reference Manual. What's the better way to beg Cadence to include these functions descriptions in the reference manual?
They are (now) - which version are you using? They are documented in IC615 documentation:
Squiggle Arrow (~>) Operator
The squiggle arrow (~>) operator is a generalization of the arrow operator. It works the same way as an arrow operator when applied directly to an object, but it can also accept a list of such objects. It walks the list applying the arrow operator whenever it finds an atomic object.
The underlying functions for ~> operator are the setSGq and getSGq functions, which set and retrieve the value of an attribute or a property. For example,
setSGq(obj value prop) ; is equivalent to:
a=getSGq(obj prop) ; is equivalent to:
info=getSGq(cvId objType) ; is equivalent to:
setSGq(rect list(10:10 100:120) bBox) ; is equivalent to:

In fact I filed CCR 819675 for this a while ago.
Is this what you are looking for?
I'm using IC615.
They are mentioned in the Language User Guide, but I think it should be formally documented in the Language Reference Manual. Don't you agree?
