Hi, I'm new with SKILL, I try to do some code and it works, but as I trying to go deeper I found some issues. I start to work with the database and as a exercise I want to extract all reference designators (or net names) from a board.
However, I was looking trough Allegro® User Guide: SKILL Reference but can not find nothing. I don't want from you to give me the code, I just need some advice in some methodology how to extract such things from database.
I found only this axlExtractMap (there is an example how to extract all net names) but if I understand it correctly it use already existing report files and I looking fore something without external files.\
If all TP that is used as symbol names starts with "TP" then you can use string manipulations to filter and check if it is connected to the net.. try to follow this routine.
lets say you store the symbol names to variable symbolName and symbolIsTP determines if it is a TP component(given that all TP components in your design starts with TP)
symbolIsTP = substring(symbolName 1 2) == "TP"
If symbolIsTP = t then it is a TP symbol
If symbolIsTP = nil then it is not..
Hope this helps.
