Warning! Scripts obtained through TechNotes, the Mentor Communities Site, or any resource not the Mentor Graphics Installer, are not supported software. Use with caution. Backup your data before executing any such script.


This example can be used in case of  need to automatically create a design architect design containing many sheets. Two files are needed. Da_session.ample is the function definition file for the session scope and schematic.ample for the schematic editor scope.


Do as follows

untar the file into /tmp. Check both AMPLE files, edit if needed. This example uses da_lms, not da_dms.

In case of using windows think /tmp as C:/tmp


export AMPLE_PATH=/tmp:$AMPLE_PATH (or setenv AMPLE_PATH  /tmp:$AMPLE_PATH)


type function call t()


Important: each time invoke a new da_lms. The schematic# counter does not work in case of not starting a new da_lms.
